  • Regarding P to V,

    After a machine (2003 server) is virtualized so there are now duplicated names on the network how much time do you have to take the physical machine down. I guess it is neglibile? Since the IP address will be detected forcing that to be changed.

    2. Things.

    1. You can always connect the new VM in a disconnected network state - therefore no IP conflicts

    2. Windows does not change the IP address of one of the machines if there is a confilict, it just disables the second one

      Maish,

      Is it correct to say that the SID does not have to be changed on a P 2 V? What if the physical and virtaul machines were both kept on within a producton network(changing name and Ip of course)?

        If you would have changed the name of one of them then the other will not be able to connect to the netowrk, it will have to be removed and re-added to the domain...

          Dup SIDs cause all kinds of problems. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb897418.aspx for a nice utility to remedy plus a discussion of the issues.

            This is a nice utility but it does not work with 64 bit platforms!! Any other suggestions are appreciated regarding SID's and P2V

              Did you try http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=newsid+64+bit ???

              First hit looks promising.

                Yes it seems SYSPREP is a safer alternative with 64 BIT OS's
