Convert Hyper-V Host to VMWare Guest VM
Posted on 2014-10-23
I have a Windows 2008 Standard server that was both our Hyper-V host for a Terminal Server VM and physical SQL Server. We have a new ESXi host and I've already converted the former Hyper-V guest TS server to it. Next I want to convert the Hyper-V host. What recommendations do you have? I'm trying to find the right balance for getting this done without breaking anything in the process.
- Just shutdown the Hyper-V server services and convert?
- Remove the Hyper-V role before converting?
