Migrating Physical k1 and K2 to virtual machines
We are planning to migrate our physical
K1000 and k2000 to virtual machines
soon. The physical ones seem sluggish
lately, and we thing its time to virtualize.
Any documentation or articles I can refer
to when doing this ?
Any advice or best practises would also help.

You will need to go via your account manager as I believe there is a charge to migrate the license. The advantage of being on a virtual K1 is that you should then be entitled to a test and dev instance.
Obviously when migrating it makes sense to remove anything that is unwanted before the move, so in the case of the K1 that may be users, assets, or inventory records mainly. The process should be simple, ensure that the old and new K1's are on the same version and then take the backup of the physical and then restore to your new virtual.
With the K2 the backup restore option really does not work, so you are better to replicate your settings onto the new virtual K2, then export as resources everything from the physical and import into the new virtual.
