Convert Hyper-V to VMware

Hi All,


I am using VMware 6.0 server, I convert Hyper-V VM to VMware through vCenter Converter. The Guest OS is Windows Server 2016. The vm converted to VMWare server successfully. When I started the vm, I cannot use mouse in VM and I cannot access the shared folders of VM from a Windows 10 client. I have disabled the firewall in vm.


I checked the vm property in ESXi server, system has installed VMware tools. Can anyone help?


Best Regards,

Hi Andrew,

After I converted to VMware, the static IP setting lose in guest OS. I need to set back the static IP (IP : 172.16.10.100) in guest OS. I can ping the vm's IP, but I cannot access \\172.16.10.100 in Windows 10 client computer.

Hi Andrew,

Sorry for late reply. Thanks for your information.

Yes, I also found the other articles that after convert the Hyper-V to VMware, the IP address of VM will be removed. I also found that I cannot install VMware Tools to this VM in ESXi server console. I need to connect ESXi Server console through VMware Workstation and then I can install VMware Tool into the VM.

After installation of the VMware Tools, I can use mouse in ESXi server console to control VM and the client computer can access the shared folder of this VM. The issue has been fixed. Thanks.
