Virtual Server 2005 R2 (without SP1) virtual machine additions needed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm in need of Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise (vanilla, without SP1) virtual machine additions (version number 13.552). I'm in the middle of migrating a VM from VS2005R2 to Hyper-V and can't make it work due to old VM additions installed.

    If someone happens to have those VM additions somewhere around, may I please ask you to upload it and share a link?

    Thanks in advance,

    Szymon

  • Do you have some automation that is expecting this particular version of VMadditions?

    The key to the process of moving from virtual server to hyper-v is to remove the VMadditions from the VM (uninstall). 

    The problem is that virtual server uses a special HAL that is not compatible with Hyper-V.

  • Start the VM in virtual Server, uninstall th eintegration services. Now you can move it to Hyper-V and install the Hyper-V integration services.
