VMWare P-2-V Windows 2003 Server

Hi Everyone,

I am going to P-2-V a physical server but its drives are attached to a HO MSA storage device.

If I P-2-V the server will the storage also come across or do I need to add a drive after a P-2-V, then copy all the data ?

The P2V process should automatically create disk devices (as VHDs) for whatever volumes you tell it to include.

As jmcg said, if you do a P2V from a physical server with storage attached to it, it will ask you during the p2v process what you want to do with the disks, copy it completely or do you want to adjust the size ... It will be somewhat self-explanatory... The disks will be created as vmdk files.
