HOW TO: P2V a domain controller

A lot has been written about P2V’ing Windows Domain controllers. The preferred way is to build a new domain controller based on a virtual machine and demote the physical domain controller. Rebuilding a new domain controllers may not always be possible due to time constraints or other dependencies like additional software running on the domain controller which can not be easily migrated. However, P2V’ing of a domain controller is possible under the right conditions. These conditions are the same for any other transactional service... [Lire la suite]

Linux P2V With DD and VHDTool – EASY and CHEAP!

So I’ve been busy the last two week getting ready for TechEd (WAHOO!) where I’m co-presenting two sessions this year.  One of the sessions is all about Linux on Hyper-V.  To get ready, I’ve been working though lots of the common operational tasks including (as you know P2V) migrations. I mentioned to my buddy Alexander Lash (my partner in crime at TechEd 2008 where we presented a great session on Hyper-V Scripting) all the challenges of Linux P2V migrations, and he mentioned an easy way to do it using DD and VHDTool. ...

Physical to Virtual Conversion of Linux Servers with VMware Converter BootCD

Although we have a number of Linux servers running on our ESX servers until recently the need had never arisen to convert an existing physical Linux server to virtual. However recently I've been doing a lot of work on using virtualization to improve Disaster Recovery options for SME clients (typically 2-25 servers), where cost is always important.
