V2V: Converting a Virtual Machine to a VMM Virtual Machine

Updated: August 14, 2009

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

In Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), a virtual-to-virtual machine conversion, or V2V conversion, is the process by which a virtual machine is converted to a Hyper-V or Virtual Server-based virtual machine in a VMM environment. The source virtual machine can be in the library or managed by a VMware ESX Server host. Currently, VMM supports converting a VMware Server–based virtual machine to an analogous Hyper-V or Virtual Server–based virtual machine deployed on a host managed by VMM.

You can move virtual machines from one virtualization platform to another by using the following methods:
