Can you help me with my software licensing question?
I have a location w/ three servers:
Server 1: SBS2003, running Exchange, file sharing, DNS, DHCP for domain1 and the entire network.
Server 2: SBS2003, AD, file sharing for domain2.
Server 3: Server2008 x32, Terminal Services. Member server of domain1.
I need to move Server 3 to a virtual environment on Server 2's box (P2V conversion and move). Server 2 has to stay in place; I want to run a VM inside of Server 2's existing OS. This will probably be a 6-month "temporary" situation, and Server 3 will gradually be used less and less. The physical server (formerly Server 3) will then be wiped and have a new installation of Server 2008 R2 x64. Server3's current installation of Server 2008 is an OEM license (MS p/n: P73-04001). It was built on a custom box.
Specs: Server 1: Windows SBS 2003 SP2 AMD Opteron Quad-core 2.1GHz 4GB RAM C: 54GB/22GB free D: 696GB/601GB free
Server 2: Windows SBS 2003 SP2 Intel Pentium D 3.00GHz 2GB RAM (soon to be 4GB) C: 32GB/25GB free D: 109GB/62GB free
Server 3: Server 2008 x32 AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-Core CPU 4GB of RAM C: 100GB (50GB free) D: 600GB w/ nothing on it
1) Is this possible? What caveats?
2) What should I use for the conversion?
3) What should I use for the virtual environment? I was considering both VMware Server and VirtualBox, but I know Windows has something for this, as well.
4) Will I have licensing issues w/ either Windows Server 2008, or with Terminal Services?
Thanks in advance!
