  • P2V for Exchange 2010

    Has anyone done a P2V for Exchange 2010? If so, please provide some guidance if you can. I have an assignment to convert some exchange 2010 servers to VSphere, and I have never done that. I have built exchange 2010 servers directly into HyperV.

    I have never done one before but I wuld have thought it would be best to have them all powered off whilst performing it, if it is even advisable to P2V Exchange 2010.

      So far all I know is that yes, the databases need to be dismounted before doing the conversion. I was hoping to find more info on the process. Or at least hear from someone that has actually done it.

        Exchange 2010 is quite happy in a virtual environment (except the UM role) so should be no problems converting it. Concur better to switch it off first.

        If you are not sure, how about building a new Exchange box (virtual) and migrating mailboxes etc over. Only issue might be with CAS certificates

              Physical Exchange Server to Virtual Environment

              Although the document mostly covers Exchange Server 2007 and 2003, the guidelines will apply to Exchange Server 2010 as well. The document covers virtual environments running on both VMware vSphere 4.1 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Hyper-V role.
