    Physical to Virtual (P to V) Conversion of vCenter Server

    StageCoach201110141 Enthusiast

      What are all the things I need to think about when convering vCenter server from a physical machine to a virtual machine?  For example:

       

      1. If the SQL database is on the same server can it be corruputed?

       

      2. If I create P to V'd vm and let it sit for a day while the physical vCenter server is up, what happens with Active Directory when I shutdown the physical vCenter server and the virtual takes over?  The virtual vCenter Server would have a less recent synchronization with Active Directory than the physical server I just shut down.  Any problems there?
