Virtual Machine Mess

April 13, 2011 at 2:05 pm 1 comment

Early this morning the Infrastructure Department at a customer site
decided to implement an exact copy of their BizTalk 2009 servers into a virtual
environment so they could better evaluate some changes planned for network and
security rules in the upcoming months.

The servers were replicated as VMs into the Xen Server
infrastructure with no problem at all. However when they tried to start them up
a lot of errors showed up in the Windows application log and the BizTalk
Service refused to start.

As soon as I got word of it I logged into the new VM
instances and found out the main reason of the problem was the Enterprise
Single Sign-On Service refusing to start because it was unable to locate the proper
DB server, the reason of this? The BizTalk and Database VMs have been created with a server name
different from the actual name of the servers in the physical environment.

Tomorrow I’m going to restore the configuration so the VMs would be up & running. It’s going to be a long day…
