VMware Converter of physical SBS 2008 - best practice
Posted on 2014-12-08
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
