I have a computer running server 2012 all setup and in use for a small business. What I would like to do is install hyperV, virtualize it , then setup another box for replication and failover.
If the computer didn't already have everything setup and SW installed, this would be simple to do, I would install server 2012, install hyper V, setup a VM, and install all the SW on that instance.
But I have all the SW installed already. Is there a way to take the existing box and just put the hypervisor on it, setup a VM, and keep everything without doing anything else, or would I have have to setup the VM, then reinstall all the SW?
