Ran a P2V of our Exchange 2010 email server this weekend and ended up with a weird issue where email sent from one internal user to another internal user would not deliver. I tried it on the Outlook client cached & non cached and through OWA, same result.
From what I can tell the P2V was clean with no issues. I even went as far as to remove the old physical hidden hardware in device manager with the same result. External email is fine and internal email from our monitoring devices (SCOM, SolarWinds, etc) would deliver fine. However, from Outlook I would send an email, it showed up under the Sent folder but I'd check the queue on the exchange server and I would see nothing during the send process. I tried it with 3 different internal accounts with the same result.
I figured there was some weirdness with the VMWare converter P2V process so I tore that VM down and started over via Unitrends using a baremetal restore to virtual. Restored the exchange server, pushed down the exchange databases, mounted them, same result.
Anyone run into this before?
