Guys,

We're trying to migrate a physical SBS 2008 server to ESXi 5.1 U2.
We've installed  VMware-converter-en-5.5.3-2183569 on the SBS itself and i wish to know if that's the best practice OR should I install it on a different machine and do the conversion from there?

In addition yesterday we've tried to perform the conversion, but after nearly 3 hours it was still stuck on 1% while transferring only 600MB in total out of 360GB.

I would highly appreciate your input on what's the best practice to perform this migration.

Thanks in advance
