Hello experts!

Would it be possible to import a physical machine from a different domain into my virtual setup with it's own DC? All the VM's and the host is joined into my domain.

The physical machine to be imported would still have a connection with it's own DC.

You can use disk2VHD tool to get the vhd file of the physical machine and then move this vhd file to anywhere.


Once you attached this VHD to VM into your environment it will start working as it was suppose to.

Yes I got the tool and I have imported physical machines before.

I was wondering how the machine that I'm going to import will respond to being in an enviroment where the hyper-v host is joined to one domain. And with the imported machine on a different one.

I'm guessing it will work fine but I thought I should ask just in case.

All you need to do is logon to machine with local administrator (This must be enabled and password you must be aware of or it can have blank password) and forcefully remove machine from one domain and join to another domain
You need to  take care of DNS settings etc

Yeah I will have to configure the NIC to be the same as the physical one. Would I still have to leave and rejoin the domain even if it is a clone?

If you want to continue with both the machine then yes you have to do some more settings. As you must be aware of the sid.

When domain affiliation changes, you must disjoin and re-join the cloned machine

Original can be left in old domain

I forgot to mention that the physical machine will be put offline before the virtual goes online.

If you put your physical machine down then no problem. Start VM and it will work fine.
