Server died. Primary Disk connected to another working server. How to P2V this secondary disk?
Posted on 2013-12-17
I have had an urgent situation, whereby our server running Windows XP died. We've managed to connect the disk to another working server, by using a caddy which has a USB lead that connects to this server. So now, this disk is being seen by the server as a secondary disk.
I ran the Vmware standalone converter, hoping that I could virtualise this primary disk and run it as a VM on this actual working server. But of course, the disk isn't mounted and so Vmware converter can't P2V this disk, so far as I see.
Do you guys have any idea how to go about doing this?
