Hi

We are trying to move a Virtual Machine from a server we deployed on Hyper-V a couple of weeks ago, into our existing VMWare farm.

While running the VMWare converter, i can pick the option to migrate a Hyper-V machine, but then when it connects to the Hyper-V server it shows the machine as "powered on" and wont let me select and continue with the machine i need to migrate. If i power off the machine then i couldn´t get the machine status.

As a note, i am running the converter from my Workstation.

Do i need to run the converter from the Hyper-V server instead?

Any help would be apprecciated.

What version of VMWare are you using? I've found the new converter (4.x) must be installed on the client in order to convert.

Try pointing directly to the OS..that may do the trick if the newest converter doesn't work

Hi

The Converter version is 4.3

I did this same procedure with another machine pointing to the OS instead of the Hyper-V and it worked fine, but when i try to do the same steps on this particular one, trying to virtualize from the Os, i got the the following message.

I think here the problem is that the disk shows as 0 kb.

See File Attached.
