Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Solution Accelerator

Convert VMware-based virtual machines and disks to Hyper-V-based virtual machines and disks with a Microsoft-supported, stand-alone solution (MVMC).

MVMC made to ease the migration from vSphere/vCenter-based irtual machines (including vCenter Server 4.1, 5.0, ESX Server 4.1 and ESXi Server 4.1, 5.0) to Hyper-V 2008 R2/Hyper-V 3, adding virtual  NICs to the converted virtual machine on Hyper-V and uninstalling VMware tools.

"MVMC provides the following features:
  • Converts and deploys virtual machines from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts including Hyper-V on Windows Server® 2012. 
  • Converts VMware virtual disks to Hyper-V based virtual hard disks (VHDs).
  • Supports conversion of virtual machines from VMware vSphere 4.1 and 5.0 hosts to Hyper-V.
  • Offers fully scriptable command-line interfaces for performing virtual machine and disk conversions that integrates well with data center automation workflows and Windows PowerShell scripts.
  • Has a wizard-driven GUI, making it simple to perform virtual machine conversion.
  • Uninstalls VMware tools prior to conversion to provide a clean way to migrate VMware-based virtual machines to Hyper-V.
  • Supports Windows Server guest operating system conversion, including Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003 SP2.
  • Enables conversion of Windows® client versions including Windows 7.
  • Installs integration services on the converted virtual machine if the guest operating system is Windows Server 2003 SP2."
