ESXi SBS 2011
Posted on 2016-09-09
I have SBS 2011 installed on ESXI 5.0 HP server. we are running out of space.
So we bought more hard drives and ram. and created a second Raid array 5 and a second datastore on the same ESXI server. I tried copying (I onkly copied the VMX and VMDK files not all files (Do I need all the files?) and using VM standalone converter and creating a copy of the SBS 2011 VM both ways left the same results. When I login into to the new VM the NIC gets a code 1 error can not install driver. The SBS console has an error opening users, the Exchange services are stuck on stopping, Opening active directory gets errors.
I need help is there a special way to create a clone or a copy of an SBS 2011 VM?
I did notice after all this a memory Dimm error on one of the modules I called HP and it getting replaced, so maybe bad memory is causing this but all other VMs are working fine.
Thanks any help is greatly appreciated.
