Lisa,

Is the instance/database already in Polyserve?
If not then use MXMIGRATE to move an instance and database into the Matrix.
If it is then you may have to disable the current Vitual instance and recreate one with a different virtual data root. If none of these answers address your problem then let me know.

Below are the steps/scripts I follow. I commented out specific manual steps you may need to complete in order. Please change the paths to your database location paths.

**NOTE - the SQL Configuration Manager doesn't always stop/start services correctly. I have found that just stopping/starting the services via Control Panel or via the Management Studio is best.

You put the files in the shared location in 3.6 and revirtualize it should work
The problem there is if you have replication, log shipping, mirroring.
Those services have to be removed or the server will not revirtualize because it cannot change the @@servername
