I have a windows server running several other virtualized servers (database, web server, etc...) as we are migrating everything to this one server rather than the stack of old hardware that's on the verge of failure.
One of these boxes we simply cannot get rid of, it has legacy cards that we use for the telcom system and are out of production and very rare (if any others exist at all).
The hard-drive on this one legacy machine with the telcom cards is failing and we're about to replace that, but, is there a way I can configure the hardware cards in the computer to connect with a virtual system over the network?
What I'm after is still using the cards on the machine, with as little dependancy on the machine as required-- the hard drive should see almost no use, just in essence using the machine as a hardware extension just for the sake of those cards.
Any thoughts on this one?
