I am having a little bit of a issue with my conversion of a windows server to a vm vmware.
I installed vmware standalone converter 5.5 on the server. Then I used the program to convert the machine. First time by it succeeded and when I turned the new vm on I couldnt get the network to run. The network service/s will not start they just timeout.
So I ran the converter again this time not electing to convert the nic card. Same result. The strange part is the network will start in safe mode only. This is my first attempt at converting a standalone server to a VM. This server is not a domain controller but does have a database on it that was stopped prior to conversion. Also While using the converter tool I was not sure if I should bring the 100mb partition along with the conversion so I left this checked by default. I also wasnt sure what services to stop during the conversion either so I did stop the obvious ones such as adobe updater and a couple other software items that I have on the server. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
