We are currently running 8.03 and have about 15 users on an older server and are looking to buy new hardware and clone our current prod server to the new server. At some point we would like to update to 10.2 but for now we are just looking to move our 8.03 environment off the old hardware and onto new hardware for several reasons. Can anyone give us any guidance on the hardware we need to look at to run our 8.03 environment for now on the new server but also be able to support the possibility of going virtual for E10 for SQL and the appserver? Can we use the Epicor hardware guides for this? Anyone have any experience with cloning 8.03 and running it on new hardware? Could we use the hardware specs for 50 users from Epicors guide for the physical server? We aren’t sure if anything special is needed hardware wise to use virtual down the road on the server other than the program to do it like VMWare.
Thanks for any help.
