I am working with a small business that wants to convert from hyper-v to vmware, they have a hyper-v server and a VMware server running ESXi 5.1 (free edition). Is there a way to convert the vhd's and import them into the new VMware Host running the free edition. There is no vCenter server that is going to be installed for it will only be a single host and no clustering. I would have to convert the following:
4 - Windows 7 vhd's
1 - Server 2008 with Exchange 2010
1 - Server 2008 (domain controller)
Any strategies on how this can be done. I don't see an import option and only see an export option in vSphere for esxi 5.1 (free edition)
