I have a Hyper-V cluster and I'm trying to convert a vm on our esx server into Hyper-V.  This is a small 10GB hard drive W2K3 server and it took over 3 hours.  Finally got it done and now to see how long it takes for esx to suck it back in and it took about 3 minutes.  Did I do something wrong converting the vm to hyper-v?  is is supposed to take this long?

Did I do something wrong converting the vm to hyper-v?: Maybe not, have you tried other products such as "StarWind V2V Converter" and VizionCore's "vConverter SC – 4.2" and check the timings, that way you'll know ms product's strength!1

I have not tried those products, however, if I install vsphere client and download the vmdk and vmx files to the server and then perform the conversion, it takes 10-15 minutes.  When I added the esx hosts to vmm and then try to convert from there it takes 3 hours.  Very different numbers, just doesn't seem right.

I ended up just doing the conversions by downloading the vmdks and vmx files myself.

Since I did not get any solutions to the problem, I'm closing the question and accepting my own answer as resolution.
