Hi

Need some advice on upgrading VMWare Windows server 2000 to VM Server 2008. Firstly is this possible. If so is there a how too guide somewhere or can someone give advice on the steps involved

We want to create High Availability and create a second server. This is why I am thinking the server we want HA with is currently on server 2000 VM. So my thinking is to firstly upgrade that to server 2008 VM. Then create a brand new 2008 VM server for HA and load balancing

That upgrade only works if where you want to end up at is a 32-bit version of 2008. If you want to go to the 64-bit version or 2008 R2 - which only comes in 64-bit you have to create a new server.
