XenCenter is hosting 2 Windows Server 2008 vm's running Sql server 2008, I need to move one 500GB SR from one to the other, is it as simple as shutting down the vm's and detach and attach the SR? Does the data remain? Sql backup (bak)files in this case.

Yes, it should be that simple.  As always, with mission critical data, I would recommend testing this first with non-mission critical data, and then making sure you have backups (or are ok with data loss).

If you want more details on the process, just ask.

It was really painless, even with old version of XenCenter

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
