What specifically are you trying to do? You can attach a VHDX in disk manager. There is no such thing as. "Linux vhdx." But just like a physical hard drive, if your vhdx has partitions formatted in a way windows can't read, such as ext2, then you can't simply mount the partition as a windows resource any more than you could with a physical drive.

I would like to recover some files on this sles11 vhdx(has partitions as ext3).
Sorry my english.

What methodology do you suggest me if disk manager will not give access to the files I want. I should mount this vhdx in another linux virtual machine?
Thanks.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You will have to mount the partition in an OS that can read ext3 then. A Linux VM or a windows VM with 3rd party drivers installed. A standard windows installation (VM or physical) cannot read ext3.

There are many. Google or Bing "ext3 windows" and you get plenty of options.
