I have a VM: Windows Server 2008 running TeamCity with a local MSSQL database, virtualized using Hyper-V. I want to migrate this VM to ESXi (free version) using VMware Converter. The VM has a reserved DHCP address, and I would like to keep the same IP to keep things simple. I plan to use netsh to dump the NIC settings to a file and import them after the conversion so that I can keep the IP address, and the DNS records that point to this server won't need to be changed. I also plan to disable encryption/SSL on the transfer to speed it up.
Lastly, I want to increase the hard disk size and allocate more RAM to the new VM. Reading up on the subject it seems like it should go smoothly. Is there anything I should be aware of? Am I inline with best practices for this type of operation?
