P2V 2008 R2 Dell to IBM
Posted on 2013-11-30
I have a query about P2V of a 2008 R2 server.
OS is running on Dell PowerEdge, is a member of Active directory as a client server, runs DHCP, Print and file services. Does not have any Active Directory role ( is not a PDC, BDC or global catalogue etc ), juts a member server of AD.
Destination hardware after P2V with DISK2vhd or ImageX is an IBM xServer.
I am OK with the P2V of OS, my question is; I have not done this before with a Active directory member server before, will being an AD member server cause any issues here? Can the P2V process work with out screwing up AD SID's and any other identities or authorization this member / AD relationship has?
Thanks in advance.
