Hi Guys, ive done a V2V from ESXi 5 to Hyper-V 2012. all is ok apart from the Exchange database. I stopped the exchange services before hand and ive done the same procedure twice. The error below is what i get when i try to mount the database. I used microsoft's virtual machine converter. Any ideas?

Can you restore the database from backup?  Also, are all your drive letters / volumes matching up with the original machine?
