I'm a little unsure of the exact sequence to move my Sharepoint 2007 Virtual server from VS2005 to Hyper-V. In my enviroment, my sharepoint machine and SQL machine are on 2 different boxes. SQL 2005 is on Hyper-V and Sharepoint is on Virtual
Server 2005. Do I shutdown the SQL VM before I move Sharepoint??? Will the new VM and SQL sync back up without any help??
Also, what happens to the SQL database if the new Sharepoint VM (on Hyper-V) has issues or problems?? Does that make my SQL server
out of sync with my old Sharepoint VM??? I have done multiple moves between VS2005 and Hyper-V so I really familiar with the process.
I usually keep the old VM around for a while after moving just in case there is a problem. I can always blow away the new VM and crank up the old. Viola! I'm back to square one.
