Virtualizing SQL Server

We have a physical server that is dying due to hardware issues and would like to virtualize it. It has Windows 2003 OS, SQL 2005 database. It is attached to a SAN storage. I'm thinking of virtualizing it using the VM converter. I've heard issues in regards to P2Vng databases. What should I be weary about? And what are the items I need to focus on to avoid issues? THank you!

Hi

you can refer the above steps , but make sure the database server will not have more IOPS.. So  you should have a new data store which has raid 5 with high rpm disk to overcome the performance issues.

With regards
