Hi,

I know there are a lot of tools to migrate esx vm's to hyper-v as there is the VMM from Microsoft, tried to download the vhd trial but can't make it work.

So please advise on you best practises/experiences on migration. Which tool to use?
I have an esxi 5.5 running some vm's already have latest vmware tools and hardware vm version, 2 vm's up and running, in total about 40 vm's.

Furthermore setup hyper-v is straight forward right (no surprises, just next next finish, attach network to virtual switch, load vm and boot)? Don't feel like it to configure/check each machine by hand.

J.

The free P2V (V2V) tools do have issues. Please see my FAQ!

It's not as easy as just install software click and bang, there is a V2V (P2V) copy, sometimes!
