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.

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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
