End all exchange services.

Change their startups to manual.

P2V

Clean up the old devices.

Reboot.

Make sure the IP is corret

start the services.

Chage their startup to automatic.

Just for your information..

VMware converter resets the IP configuration , so your target virtual server will have no IP configured and you need to do the IP configuration.
