This isn't 100% of a Veeam question, but the main reason for trying to keep the existing vCenter is Veeam related.
So we're migrating away from a 2003 SBS single DC environment (olddomain.local) to a new 2012 R2 multi DC brand new AD domain (internal.newdomain.com).
We're running ESXi 5.0 and vCenter Server Appliance 5.0, using Veeam to target the vCenter Server Appliance by DNS for accessing the VMs.
We're going to be staging the new build over the next month or so, at the end of which, olddomain.local will no longer exist.
I know in the past, when rebooting the single DC and connected through vCenter, my console session fails to connect.
Essentially, I'm trying to not create new backups (due to space constraints) and ensure I can connect to the VM console through vCenter.
I know that if I reconnect the hosts to vCenter, the VMs will get new new IDs and essentially be new VMs to Veeam.
Anyone have any ideas how I'd go about this?
