In the process of upgrading to the new server, I had hoped to go straight from Virtual Server 2005 to Hyper-V. If you’ve been following, I’ve completely virtualized my environment except for my work laptops, firewall and our desktops. [Although I’ve created a dedicated virtual desktop to manage my finances.]
Things took a turn for the worse, however, when I discovered that I couldn’t start the virtual machines [this included the web server] on Hyper-V. I tried copying them to the other server, but with no luck. So, I had to install Virtual Server, which is nowhere near as good or fast. So, in order to achieve Hyper-V-ness, I have migrated the web server, removed the other server from the domain and uninstalled Virtual Server. I’m now rebooting the server in the final stages of the Hyper-V installation.
Once it’s done, I’ll install a new server to take the place of the one I couldn’t convert…
Although, I’m now having some weird “general access denied” problem when creating a new server. Looks like I have more research to do. At least I can leave the server up and running while I work on this.
