Has anyone tried to run vmconvert on a Windows 2008 64 bit server running Exchange 2007? Here is what I did. I stopped the Exchange processes and IIS and ran vmconvert. When I moved the new server to my vmware server 2.0 for windows and booted it. All seemed well except I could not send or receive email. All outbound was stuck in the queues. I was able to log in via OWA so that tells the network setup/NIC bindings were OK. Any ideas?
What errors are the queue viewer giving?
Standard troubleshooting steps are to sit on Exchange server and do a nslookup of SMTP server you need to send to, then do a telnet smtp.servername.com 25 to test connectivity out to external server.
Also look at your send connector to make sure you're using DNS MX records and not routing through a smart host or External DNS Lookup being enabled. If your box had relocated to a different network or subnet these settings need to verified.
If the guest O.S. can boot and its network setup is ok, everything that could have been broken by the P2V conversion most certainly wasn't, so the problem should lie somewhere else.
