2 Agenda Introductions Migration Drivers and Challenges Migration considerations Migration Process Walking through a physical-to-virtual (P2V) migration Q & A

3 Introduction John Kelbley johnkel@Microsoft.com johnkel@Microsoft.com Senior Technical Product Manager with Microsofts Platform Tech Strategy Team (Redmond-based group) Field-based corporate resource focused on customer and partner engagement for new server technology Server Virtualization High Performance Computing (HPC)

4 Agenda Introductions Migration Drivers and Challenges Migration considerations Migration Process Walking through a physical-to-virtual (P2V) migration Q & A

5 Types of Migrations P2V = Physical to Virtual- Conversion of a physical host to a virtual instance V2V = Virtual to Virtual – Migration from one virtualization platform (or host) to another V2P = Virtual to Physical – Conversion from a virtual instance to running on the metal

6 Phyisical to Virtual Drivers Target hosts often include older systems saddled with: Hardware maintenance costs Spare-part availability challenges Vintage operating systems & applications Unsuppored by vendor Vendor out of business (no where to be found!) Limited or no backup awareness Limited or no failover capability (HA)

7 Agenda Introductions Migration Drivers and Challenges Migration considerations Migration Process Walking through a physical-to-virtual (P2V) migration Q & A

8 P2V: Risk Versus Reward Virtualizing older, unsupported systems doesnt extend support from sofware vendors P2V can drastically reduce risk of failure Regardless of support status, eliminating high-risk hardware can be a good thing Virtualizing means new opportunies for: Backup and recovery High Availability Management and monitoring

9 Agenda Introductions Migration Drivers and Challenges Migration considerations Migration Process Walking through a physical-to-virtual (P2V) migration Q & A

10 High-level Migration Steps 1. Assess the existing configuration 2. Capture the configuration 3. Capture disk image(s) 4. Transpose disk image(s) 5. Disable the legacy system 6. Transpose the configuration

11 Configuration Assessment How much RAM is required for the VM? What are the disk requirements and anticipated growth? How many network connections are required? Do the MAC addresses need to be preserved? Does the system require significant CPU? How many cores can the system use require? Hardware specific software to be removed?

12 Data Collection: Local Use command line tools on physical host to persist configuration info locally IPCONFIG /ALL >c:\IPCONFIG.TXT WMIC works on XP / 2003 and newwer Wmic os > c:\os.txt Wmic qfe > c:\patches.txt Wmic baseboard > c:\baseboard.txt Wmic cpu > c:\cpu.txt Wmic nic > c:\nic.txt

13 Data Collection: MAP Toolkit Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) toolkit is a free download that can inventory, assess, and report on your environment http://www.microsoft.com/virtualization/downloads.mspx http://www.microsoft.com/virtualization/downloads.mspx Collects performance data over time including historical measurements for Processor Network Disk Can inventory harddware & software all at once Creates Excel formatted reports you can use

14 Configuration / Disk Capture Configuration data should have already been captured – requires review Any cricual parts that will not virutalize (USB, voice, A to D)?

15 Configuration / Disk Capture Dedicated P2V Tools Acronis, PlateSpin, Vizioncore, VSMT, and (my favorite) SCVMM Backup and Recovery Tools Often havea bootable recovery disk I use Windows Home Server! (completely unsuported!) Disk imaging works well Ghost (cost money) ImageX (donesnt cost money) Part of Windows Vista / 2008 WAIK

16 Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) Ddesigned to help customize and deploy Windows operation systems Can help perform Unattended Windows installs Capture / deploy Windows images with ImageX Create Windows PE images You can download the WAIK from Microsoft in the form of an ISO image file

17 Disk Capture / Dissable Phyisical Host Boot Physical host with WinPE Capture disk image(s) with ImageX Imagex /Capture c:\ d:\my_server.wim My Server /verify Turn off / disconnect physical host

18 Transposing Configuration Construct VM comfiguration to mimic physical host requirements RAM, Logical Processors, NICs, Disks Add Legacy Adapter if network support requred for image deployment (drivers should be in WinPE already)

19 Dissabling Phyisical Host Boot Physical host with WinPE Capture disk image(s) with ImageX Imagex /Capture c:\ d:\my_server.wim My Server /verify

20 Transposing Disk – Prep Disk Easisest to install actual OS to prep disk (VHD) properly, or try to prep manually (bad idea) Boot from WinPE ISO (or CD) Diskpart Select Disk 1 (could be different) Create Part primary Assign (get a drive letter) Format fs-NTFS quick Exit

21 Transposing Disk Apply image(s) with ImageX ImageX /apply d:\2k3.wim 1 c: /verify

22 Transposing Disk-NEWSFLASH! WIM2VHD Available to public! Converts Windows Imaging Format to VHDs! http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/wim2vhd

23 Transposing Configuration Modern versions of Windows do a good job of detecting new hardware components Changes to the number of processors (cores) / type Repair option from startup media can correct many startup anomalies Issues to manaully correct might include: Add Integration Components (ICs) Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) Uni / multiprocessor capabilities For Windows 2000, you may need to reinstall the operating system over the existing installation (as per KB246236) or take other actions (as described in KB249694) Automated migration tools can detect and address many troublesome migration issues
