I currently have a server running ESXi 5.0 and a virtual machine:
- W2K8 SBS as a DC for our domain. The W2K8 SBS server gets backed up to a NAS every night using Shadow Protect.
I have purchased a new server, installed ESXi 5.5 on it and I now want to move the above W2k8 SBS machine to it.
I have tried using vConverter Standalone to migrate the latest ShadowProtect backup image to new VM server.
That worked, but it takes 1day12hours, so by the time its finishes, the content is different (users receiving emails, etc).
Is there a quicker (cost free) way to do this?
