    server went virtual

      if you set up a node looking at a physical server and then convert the server to a virtual server, will it still monitor properly without any changes?

          There may be an issue if the IP address changes.  You'd need to set the node to dynamic in order to allow SolarWinds to pick up the new IP.  Otherwise, it should be fine.  We've been doing a virtual migration for some time without issue.  Another item you may run into is to remove hardware polling in SolarWinds prior to this as the server will no longer have Hardware Health.

            1. ICMP Ping heartbeat would still work fine - availability of the server basically

            2. If you are using SNMP or WMI - please re-discover the resources (list resources - for Disks and interfaces).
