Hello,

I am trying to find the best way to migrate multihomed server 2008 to windows server 2008 R2. I currently have a physical Windows 2008 server that has AD, DNS and DHCP roles and I would like to migrate all roles to Windows 2008 R2 virtual machine hosted by VMWare EXsi host.

Thank you very much

Hiya Chris,

This isn't really the best forum for this question. You are best asking over at the VMware Communities forums.

The simplest way would be to P2V or create a new VM, dcpromo it, move all the FSMO roles, demote the old one, install DHCP, then use netsh to export your old DHCP and import it into the new DHCP. There's more to ESXi than just installing it, esp if using it as a AD server (and therefore time source) for your domain, and none of that is really for the Exchange forums.
