How can I export one windows instance (with active directory, SQL, SharePoint) from amazon (EC2) to my local environment, and be able run it on a local VMware workstation?
I have used the VMware vCenter converter to do this and I am able to get the virtual machine using the following instructions: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1018015
However, when I try to run it on VMware workstation, the machine doesn't load and I get the blue screen.
Repairing doesn't fix it, and I think the problem is Active Directory.
Any ideas? It is possible to take a clone directly from amazon volumes/virtual disk? Maybe using a different tool?
Thank You in advance.
