I want to P2V (online) my Exchange server 2003 using VMM2012 to HOST (Server 2012. I read a lot information about it. I installed VMM 2012. Last step is just start migration.
My main question is what services should be off. What services I should leave on??? My Mail server should be running. I can't turn it off.
If some body can make like a list...would be very thankful.

Stopping all exchange services will be a wise decision while p2v ... However people have reported doing it live with 2007. I have done p2v of 2003 exchange and later versions with services stopped .... They came up fine once done.

What u can test is to do a live p2v but select "do not power off the source " that is ur production exchange and make sure you don't connect your virtual test exchange to your production virtual network ... Make it a mmember of.test network ...

You would need a test dc to talk to exchange after conversion.

This is a test am suggesting to check if p2v of a live will go without a problem ... Or if u can stop services that will be the safest option .

I think - as I have said - do a test conversion in a isolated network with the following :

P2V a Production DC > into the TEST NETWORK with no access whatsoever to your production

P2V Exchange 2003 > into the TEST Network with no access whatsoever to your production

You can try with services ON first and see if they don't obstruct - as I am recommending a test.

Make sure "When P2V via VMM - You dont check the option to POWER OFF the Phsyical / Original / Production Box / Source .. as you will be P2V'ing to a TEST Network.

Hope that Helps
