I'm currently testing the migration process of a Windows 2008 server (R2) to Xenserver. Currently I have a windows 2008 R2 server running ( Domain controller, dns, ... ) and I want to migrate this to Xenserver.
I tried different approaches but I keep on stumbeling upon a bluescreen when booting the windows VM. I have allocated the same amount of memory and virtual CPU's then the orginal host.
It seems that the VM crashes when it tries to load the disk drivers.
I also tried to use migration tools for XenServer but they where not successfull in completing the job.
My last try was to install the Xen drivers on the host before it was migrated to the Xen VM. The installer then asks to reboot the server but it keeps on rebooting after this point ( I get the login screen and then the server reboots).
Does anyone have any experience with migrations such as this?
