    Cc4 virtualising the servers

    Hello

    Just taken over a school running cc4, there servers are pretty oldish, is there anything on the rm servers or will I break anything rm related components if I do a p2v on to a esx environment backend?

    Hi,

    We have 3 CC4 DCs running 2003R2.

    About 18 months ago, we P2Vd them, VMware ESXi and have had no problems at all.

    Paul.

    I think RM'd charged a fortune for doing it for you.

    RM Support is there for CC4 as usual.

    Last question, as I don't normally deal with rm stuff, does doing that effect the support contact with rm?

    No it doesn't affect support from RM, all support is still there, however if VMware had a problem, i.e. destroying data / RM software as a result, they wouldn't help (or charge to)

    Ours runs as expected, and all support calls with RM are addressed as usual and the system works better than it did.

    Tbh I've had no problems at all, we're using 2 high spec. HP servers with a 4 TB NAS with everything spread across it with 9 VMs

    All I would make sure you do, is check disk quotas in the RMMC once you have finished, as the size of the partitions will have increased etc.
