I would like to create a VM from a Windows 2000 Server that houses an antiquainted application engine that uses Sql Server 2000 as a repository. The application is necessary to access the first several years of structured information from their business.
What I'm looking for is a way to create a VM of this system and run it in the same Hyper-V environment housing a VM of the client side of this application. I used DISK2VHD to make the VM of the client side, but needed to upgrade the client from XP to Windows 7 before DISK2VHD would run. I understand DISK2VHD requires VSS which didn't come into play until xp and Server 2003.
What would recommend as a procedure to follow to accomplish this?
