Separate out partitions in VHDX file after P2V conversion
Posted on 2015-02-13
Doing a conversion from physical to virtual. Have run disk2vhd to convert the physical machine to the VHDX in prep to spin up a 2012R2 Hyper V environment.
In the past conversions i've done, its been either multiple disks or single partition per raid array. However in this current one it's one array with 3 partitions. I initially did one capture, then realised it had put all three partitions into the one VHDX file. So then i did the 3 seperately, but found it still contained the same partition layout just with no data in the other two partitions.
From reading online the disk2vhd tool litterally does just that. Takes the full disk partitions and all and dumps it into one file. For the sake of easier management it would be better to have these as separate VHDX files. What's the easiest way to do this?
