New challenge. I want to P2V an exchange 2003 box and from previous discussions the recommended method, I understand, is to create a VM from scratch, add exchange and move mailboxes. However, is it possible to do P2V in the way I recently did my SQL box (with services stopped)? The other equally important point is that this machine has IIS with a number of virtual folders, one that has an ssl cert installed using port 443 and each one tied to an IP address -all of the IP addresses are added to the main NIC . In the conversion process what of IIS would be retained and working and what would need added - I know now that the vmxnet3 would need all the ip addresses added to it -but how would IIS be after the conversion -would the ssl need to be re-installed? Thanks in advance.
