    P2V clustered servers for DR purposes

    taylorb Expert

      Looking for a little advice on P2V'ing a set of physical clustered win2003 servers to a VMware host that we are shipping off site for DR.  We are somewhat in a bind as the guy that set up these clusters (and the only one that knows clustering) kind of disappeared on us.   I have to have this pair on the DR host (ESX 4) ready to ship in 2 weeks.   One server in the Cluster has file shares and the other has SQL and more file shares.   I do not care if they are still a cluster after P2V as they are just for data recoverability.  Any tips on how to proceed?   Can I just p2v each as a standalone and they will come up thinking the cluster is broken, but their own resources will still work fine? 

       

      Thanks.
