Can you run the same Windows Server vm on two totally separate sites? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We're about to move to a new site, which will be completely separate to our existing one. Once everyone eventually moves, the old site will be sold and the infrastructure decommissioned.

    I want to move/migrate the virtual servers to a new virtualized environment on the new site, and I wanted to copy an instance of the servers to the new server so they run on both the current site and also the new one until i move everything over. I'm going to keep the same domain and same IP range.

    Would this work? Could I for example copy the DC and keep it running on the current site, and also run it on the new site, and once I know it works, I can turn the old one off and decommission? Or would there be any issues?
