The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Beta Solution Accelerator is a 4 MB download that converts VMware virtual machines to Hyper-V. The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter:

  • Provides a quick, low-risk option for VMware customers to evaluate Hyper-V
  • Converts VMware VMs, virtual disks and configuration, (memory, virtual processor, etc.) from the source to Hyper-V
  • Uninstalls the VMware tools on the source VM and installs the Hyper-V Integration Services as appropriate
  • Includes an easy-to-use wizard-driven GUI simplifying VM conversion

The current MVMC Beta supports converting virtual machines created with:

  • VMware vSphere 4.1
  • VMware vSphere 5.0

To virtual machines for:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V
  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1

Support for Windows Server “8” Hyper-V is in the works, but not in the current MVMC Beta release.
