I used VMware Converter to do a P2V of my server.
My server had 3 HDDs: C: D: E: (SATA/IDE)
I only included the C: drive (boot) in the image, because I had not intended to need to activate this VM - just access the files.
After doing a P2V I reinstalled the host OS on to C:.
It turns out that I now need to run the old server as a VM... the problem is drives D: and E: are not accessible, but they are needed in order for the server to function correctly.
How can I access the physical drives D: and E: on my host from my VM in a transparent way? I cannot used network shares because things like SQL server on the VM will not let you have the data store on a network share.
Any ideas? Thanks, Jack
Edit: I am using Vmware Server 2.x (latest from site), Windows Server 2008, and SATA/IDE discs.
