I’m experimenting with Virtual Server 2005 R2 on a Windows Server 2003 Ent. Edition (SP1). I would like to create the virtual version of my Terminal server, for emergency reasons, if something gets broken on the physical hardware. (P2V Functionality)
After a couple of hours I managed to configure Virtual Server, ADS, VSMT, DHCP at the same computer. I successfully captured the image of the terminal server, but as I start the last command file, everything seems ok, but, it gets extremely slow with deploying the image. Extremely means, that after 10 hours, only 22% of the process is completed. Has anyone an idea, what could be the reason for it?
The parameters of the servers:
Virtual Srv: 2GHz cpu, 768 MB ram, 120GB EIDE HDD
Terminal Srv: IBM X200 Brand, P3, 1,2 GHz, 640 MB ram, 17 GB SCSI HDD
