How to migrate Citrix Xenserver quest VMs to MS Hyper V host?

This is using Citrix Xenserver. There are 5 VMs in it. We have set up a new MS Hyper V host, and my management wants me to plan to migrate all the Xenserver VMs into it. What should I do to migrate all these VMs to hyper v?

Thanks in advance!

If you have no access to SCVMM, I would suggest Disk2VHD, Download in the VM, Run Inside the VM, save to a network share on the Hyper-V Server, and add the VHD to a VM.

If you have only 2-3 apps installed on them then just reinstall.

You can download a sample vm of  scvmm from Microsoft website it Will be usable for 90 days
After that execute phisical to virtual. Asistant

After that remove the virtual machine you can do test migrations without shutting down the original machine.


Try to copy vhd from one server to the other after intalling services disk the server could work correctly you dont need to do disk2vhd as the format
 Of xenserver is vhd
