Migrate from Hyper-V to Xen Server 6.2

I need to determine the most efficient way to migrate a VM running on Hyper-V over to a Xen Server running 6.2.

We have NFS mounts pointing to a SAN where the VM's will be stored on the new Xen Server.

Andrew,
Thanks for the second option.  Do you have details on how to do this exactly?  I am pretty new to Hyper-V, somewhat familiar with Xen.   I'm an ESX dude.

I think you will need to convert to a VMware VMDK, and take it from there.

Xen Server has a native feature built-in on 6.2.  I was able to go straight from Hyper-V to the new Xen Host and SAN all at once.
