It sounds like a pretty horrific case of Vendor Lock-in. If I were in your place, I'd spend some serious time unpicking the Laserfiche file format with hex editors, and so on, see if I could figure out anything from the content of the file, and the hex representation of it. It might turn out that there's something standards-compliant buried inside an ugly ...

I recently converted from a VMware Server environment to ESXi 4. For each VM, I ran the VMware Converter app and converted from VMware Server (the server 2.0 machine) to virtual (the ESXi machine). Worked great. The only wrinkle was that I had to reactivate each Windows machine. Apparently the "hardware" changed enough to trigger a new activation.

You will want to do what is called a "database attach upgrade" of your 2007 data. The basic outline of what happens is that you: setup your SharePoint 2010 farm (make sure that all the settings are setup how you want them, and that you include all custom/3rd party solutions and web parts) backup your SharePoint 2007 database(s) restore your database(s) to ...

You have something that already works perfectly as long as it can access stuff via http://markonsolutions.com/joomla/, so let's just leave that part alone and make it work via http://markonsolutions.com/ too. First, we'll set your DocumentRoot to the /joomla directory, and then we'll configure an Alias on markonsolutions.com/joomla so that both work. That ...

Normally I do this kind of transfers by rsync'ing between the two hard drives, so your hunch about either rsync or cp -avx looks more than right to me. In order to boot from the new disk as you did from the old one you just need to reinstall grub in the new boot sector (I'm assuming you're using grub here). For RedHat based Linux distros (CentOS, RHEL, ...

Non DC. Only a DC should be used as a domain controller, nothing else should be installed on it. It reduces attack surfaces for programs that might be vunerable, reduces the risk of a bugged update for the program taking down your DC and WSUS can take up a lot of space depending on what updates you have selected. Best practices or not, I would never install ...

Licensing questions aside: First, you can see here: In-place upgrade from Windows Server 2012 Foundation to Windows Server 2012 Standard that an in-place upgrade isn't supported. However, your scenario is supported just fine. Be sure and move over the FSMO roles and properly decommission the Foundations server (dcpromo it and then remove it from the ...

Don't forget to add the new DC to the client ip settings for DNS, assuming your DC is also your DNS server.

transfer the FSMO roles to the new server, then demote the old server using dcpromo again you may also want to check the replication status of your new server using repadmin /showrepl

Yes, it's really that simple, it'll just work - but you may well wish to update each VM's model version, reboot them, update the VMTools, reboot and maybe reconfigure your vNICs - then you'll benefit from the performance benefits best. Oh and take into consideration that 4.1 has just been launched which can be faster than 4.0U2, although it's newer so ...

Download and run the SQL Server 2008 Upgrade Advisor Check if you're currently using any deprecated feature in SQL 2005 that might have be discontinued in SQL 2008, see What deprecated features am I using? Look at the Backward Compatibility topic of the feature(s) you use (Engine, SSAS, SSRS, SSIS, Replication) and see if there is anything that applies to ...

VMware Converter. Free and easy. You might install it on different machine than the win2k3 server and then point it at that one to convert. It definitely will help if the server and the ESXi box are on a fast network together (gigabit)

This Microsoft KB article should help

It would run longer if you moved to x64. It could use as much memory as you could throw at it before blowing up. In x86, you probably would not even reach the 2 GB process limit before blowing up. Then you could recycle the application pool less often and hopefully after hours when fewer users are impacted. But does it "handle VBScript better or more ...

I'm fairly sure that this should be as simple as taking a snapshot of the zfs to be moved, and then using zfs send and zfs recv to move that snapshot between zpools: zfs send oldpool/my-data@snap1 | zfs recv newpool/my-data (taken from http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19963-01/html/821-1448/gbchx.html#gbinw)

Yes, you can move the virtual machine from one host to the other. It's less than ideal, since your VM will be scheduled across two physical CPUs, but it will definitely work.

I would suggest you look into imapsync, http://freshmeat.net/projects/imapsync/ It's rather robust, if a little daunting at first, but it'll get the job done.

If you have IMAP access to your current mail, Google provides a tool that can do the migration for you: http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=61369&query=migrate&topic=&type=

I'm not sure how you import the machines into ESXi as I've never used it, but I do know that in Workstation, a VM (including all its snapshots) are just a collection of files in a folder. Copy that folder onto your new server, import into VMware, and you have your machine in the same state as before (snapshots included.) If ESXi is anything like VMware ...

If for whatever reason you can't use the converter to move the machines there are a few ways to do this. First shutdown the guest and find it's data files on the VMware Server 2.0 machine. You then need to copy those files to the ESXi server either through the Infrastructure Client (host->configuration->storage; right click the datastore and click browse) ...

Yes, it's very straightforward. Here is a good tutorial for migrating from older versions: Transitioning from Exchange 2000/2003 to Exchange Server 2007 There are some things you'll have to do in order to prepare your domain for Exchange Server 2007, though: Preparing Active Directory Prepare Legacy Exchange Permissions Prepare Schema PrepareDomain and ...

You want to take a currently configured system with Windows 2003 and install ESXi on the same hardware while moving the current W2K3 setup into a VM - right? You won't be able to do this in one step but as Chris_K pointed out VMware Converter is the best tool to use for the conversion of the physical OS install to a Virtual Machine. If I understand your ...

What version of Windows server are you running? Server 2012 has the ability to run in a failover cluster relationship. I have attached a blog post about it below. Unfortunately it is talking about migrating from an existing Windows DHCP environment. But it may have some useful info for you. As for the importing the dhcpd.conf if you grep out your different ...

Not much to worry about really. You can either detach the db, move and reattach or backup and restore. Does the application that uses the db support 2008? If not then leave it in 90 compatability mode.

At the moment it is only possible for Red Hat, as they are developing the virt-v2v tool, if an automated method is what you are looking for. See this video, where they demonstrate how easy it is. Another option is to do everything by hand. This (2) blog post describes how to do it step-by-step for RHEL guests. I would guess it is fairly similar for Ubuntu ...

I think your paths are hardcoded in template file templates/markon7810/index.php In "view source" I see all css classes are named "art-". Few Google queries, and in results can bee seen from where "art-" comes from. It is programmatically generated template (Artisteer - joomla template generator). So, if you do not have images after moving to "/m/", it can ...

The problem you see is because the command 'ec2-bundle-vol' is for creating S3-backed AMIs. You have therefore, taken your EBS backed AMI - created, uploaded, and registered its contents as an S3 backed AMI, and then launched that S3 backed AMI in the new region. Unfortunately, there is no built in way to migrate an AMI with an EBS root between regions. You ...

Migrating instances across regions is indeed not as straight forward as one would like to think, albeit a solved problem: The commonly used approach is explained in Eric Hammonds's elaborate article Copying EBS Boot AMIs Between EC2 Regions. The same approach is illustrated in Rob Linton's more visual presentation Migrating EBS AMI's betweeen AWS Regions. ...

You cannot migrate a JBOD unit disk into a raid 1 mirror. You must deselect export JBOD policy in the 3ware controller first. Once you do this the disk in question will remain as a "JBOD" unit and not automatically be considered a "single disk." According to the RAID level migration chart that is linked to in the question, the Single Disk Unit is ...
