win 2008 server convert
Posted on 2013-01-16
currently sbs2008 server is physical server and planning to covnert it into VM.
ESXi host version : 4.1
so far did some tests- converted live sbs 2008 server into VM (P2V) and it was successfully converted and loaded into host.
We can run the VM and log in but many services are not running like unable to open IE, exchange server is not working and so many other features.
In SBS2003 (win 2k3 server) we didn't face any such problem.
Anything we need to consider to make this work- we have also converted additional drives and it doesn't allow to change the drive letter on VM.
To test it can we enable network having 2 SBS server on same network? offcourse it does have same name and sid.
Please let me know how to resolve this issue so that we can convert SBS2008 server into VM
