P2V - SBS Server to Virtual Box?
Posted on 2014-04-25
I would like to convert an SBS server (SBS 2008) to a VirtualBox Virtual Machine for the purposes of archiving the server. Basically, we want to sell the hardware the box is on, and keep the server in case we ever need anything off of it.
I tried (briefly) to create a new VM in VirtualBox and restore a full disk SBS backup, but gave up rather quickly when it was having a hard time booting into a restore environment.
Does anyone have success with this? Anyone have any guides to follow?
