I have a linux server running Centos (actually its a PBX running Trixbox) that I want to migrate to a Hyper-V based VM so that the physical server can be repurposed.

Is it possible to capture a VHD image directly from a Linux server?

There are some converters to VMWare's vmdk disk format - qemu-img (QEMU), clonehd (VirtualBox) or the VMWare Converter would do. You can then use something like vmdk2vhd or SCVMM to convert to VHD.

+1 qemu-img is a great way to convert raw disks, vmdk, vhd, qcow, etc. – Chris S Sep 22 '11 at 22:51
