I want to use VMM to convert a vsphere VM to Hyper-V.
The problem is VMM shows that the VM I want to convert as "Unsupported VM Configuration"
All of the other VMs on that vsphere server show no problem. I can't figure out what is different about this one VM I want to convert.

Hi

Is there any ISO in the Virtual CD-ROM?

Is the VM in suspend state? Or lock?

Try to check the VM state, and all the devices that are "attached" to this VM.

No ISO in the CD-Rom. I even removed the cd-rom.
It is powered off.

Hi

Even the VM is power off, if have ISO will not work. Or even the VM is power off can have locked files, or is in suspend state.

So try to power on the VM, and then shutdown again. Check also if there any snapshots. VM with snapshots some have this issues.

Not sure what actually resolved the issue but I changed the memory size from 4GB to 3GB, Removed the CD and moved one drive from IDE 0:1 to 0:0.  NOw it does not show unsupported. You stil get the points for helping!  Thanks!
