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.
