Coverting physical server to VMware with Symantec BackupExec Media Server
I would need to help with some problem. We have old physical server, which is not reliable anymore and we want it to convert to virtual environment. I will find the way how (I have done it many times), but, I am not sure, if my Symantec BackupExec 2010 would work in virtual machine as well ? because, we have very big problem with installing Symantec BackupExec 2010 R3 Media Server in virtual machine. After backup job, which failed with some error with virtual drivers, both virtual servers, which was backing up had damaged network cards (I will post this problem in new topic). Actually, I really would like to be able to have old server with all features in virtual environment also with BackupExec and I will change all my jobs to the file backup to network location.
also, second part is about converting. I have been performing it by VMware Converter few times, but actually, I had better experience with doing it by Symantec System Recovery 2011, which we have already bought for our server. What do you think? I would really like to do coversion as soon as possible.
thanks for all help
all the best to the new year 2013
