Project Description

I have a xenserver 6.2 running 4 vms

2 x windows server 2008 r2

1 x windows 7 desktop.

1 x centos (2 ips)

The server is running xendesktop, however the server keeps crashing apparently due to an issue with the realtek network card.

I need someone to move the windows and centos machines to hyper v 2008 R2, I was thinking of using the desktop version with GIU and installing hyper v onto that as a service.

An external server is available that holds the backups in OVA format i will create new ones with Xentools uninstalled. These will need to be converted to Hyper V.

Security and other issues for the hyper V server will need to be completed.

On the 2nd server veeam backup will need to be configured and allowed to run on a daily basis.

On completion xendesktop and the centos vms and content should work as they do now.

Only people with Virtualisation, and Hyper V expirence should bid.

Please type Hyper VV 88 in bid so i know read this

There is a facility to install windows 2008 R2. I will take care of this. I will also provide the backups in XVA file format (not OVA) on an external server with windows 2008 installed with a 100mb connection on same network.

Tools are available to do this like xenconvert.

The centos kernel appears to be non citrix based.

We can backup the centos plesk machine with plesk backup to ftp, install fresh centos and plesk and import that way. Although long winded and not ideal. id prefer the image to be moved over. But at least we have the option.
