At our TechNet Event in Saint Louis, Matt J asked:
“How do I migrate from Microsoft Virtual Server to Hyper-V?”
I haven’t been asked that for quite awhile (about 3 years, actually). But we did have a few people at our event in Saint Louis that are still using Microsoft’s previous virtualization solution, Virtual Server. Thankfully, because Hyper-V uses the same .VHD format for virtual hard disk files as did Virtual Server, the process is actually pretty straightforward. From this document:
Migrating your virtual machines that are running on Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 to Hyper-V is a straightforward process. To migrate, you do the following general steps:
- Prepare the virtual hard disk in Virtual Server.
- Move the .vhd file (if necessary).
- Create a new virtual machine in Hyper-V using the .vhd file.
