I have to convert several physical machines to virtual machines in a Hyper V environment. I have two host servers with Windows Server 2012 R2 and Hyper V installed, which have been installed by a consultant. As far as I know I need the Virtual Machine Manager Administrator Console tool to perform the conversion. However I can't find where to download this tool. Is this a licensed tool or can I download it for free? I've been looking at several Technet articles to find a solution, and among others, but I can't seem to find the solution. The existing servers must be converted with their current OS, applications etc. So basically I want to create a VHD of the existing physical servers and move them into the Hyper V environment. Can any of you please help me on how to do this?

Thanks in advance,
