I have Hyper-V installed on a robust cluster host, I have a physical server that has sharepoint 2003 and BackupExec running on it . I also have a scisi backup tape connected to this server.
I would like to move (convert from physical to virtual Sharepoint server). Can someone explain me and reassure me on the move . I am not worry about backupExec since I will reinstall it on another server after the move.
Also the SQL database resides on another box , so basically it is only the frontend server that will be moving.
When the migration happens Online or Offline , what happen to my physical server ? is it completly empty or the moving actually make a copy of the entire server and then shut it down , and do I need to do so special configuration ( IP address, domain,...)
Thank you for clarifying that.
