  • Should I P2V a Certificate Authority?

    We're in the process of virtualizating some of our servers. For the DCs I created VMs transferred the roles etc and that worked fine. I'd like to just use the physical to virtual S/W for the server thats our CA (certificate authority) Does anyone know if there is any reason not to do this? Just trying to forsee any potential problems. I used it on some of our App servers. Basically it does it online. It installs an agent makes a copy to the ESX host then you power down the original and turn on the VM copy. I'm not a CA expert just thought I'd ask if anyone sees a problem in doing it this way.

    Hi Jason0923

    I strongly suggest using a better topic line for your question(s), it will bring in more people than what you have now.

    As for your question, if I understand correctly, you're asking if there's anything preventing you from moving your CA from physical box to VM?
