Server 2003 P2V Hyper-V 2012R2

Hi,

I've looked online for data on conversions from Physical 2003 servers to Hyper-V 2012R2 and seen nothing but problems.

I've done it successfully in the past from 2003 to VMware using their conversion tool. Anyone have any clean paths or suggestions for migration from Dell 2003 servers to Hyper-V 2012R2 virtual machines? Thanks.

I wanted to stay away from that since this is a small office with 2x 2003 servers to convert.

However I guess I can try the eval. However the first link for VMM seems like its for the previous version of System Center 2007 or 2008. The eval link you provided is for 2012, are they compatible with each other? Can I install all of this on 2012R2?

I remember one convert I tried to do recently of an OEM 2003, after I somehow got it activated and then installed the Hyperv2012 R2 Integration Services, after the next boot, it couldn't find a key boot file and wouldn't boot.

I used disk2vhd as that is what I had used before but I found another post online where somebody had actually added the Legacy Network Adapter to the server which allowed it to activate off the bat. Anyhow, I did that and didn't run into any issues.
