There's a tool made for this very thing, called the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (currently at version 3.0). As to your questions about time and the best way to do this, those are highly variable, environment-specific things you'll have to figure out on your own. Shouldn't be too hard - pick some typical VMs, time their conversions, extrapolate how ...

SNMP is actually deprecated in Server 2012 - have a look at this. You can still install SNMP as a feaure though, so try doing as described on this page if you haven't done so already. Next step is to figure out if the traps you want are actually in the collection of things exposed by the Windows SNMP service. You do this via the traps tab on the SNMP ...

Microsoft has a tecnet article on how to configure Hyper-V for remote management in a workgroup (without a domain), you can find that here.

The virtual machines aren't bound to your Hyper-V management console, they're bound to the Hyper-V host. Changing the domain membership of the computer that you're running the Hyper-V Manager from won't have any effect on your virtual machines.

The CPU Wait Time Per Dispatch counter in either the Hyper-V Hypervisor Root Virtual Processor or the Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor counter sets means, quite simply: The average time (in nanoseconds) spent waiting for a virtual processor to be dispatched onto a logical processor. The answer of "what should it be?" entirely depends on the ...

To calculate the percentage of performance lost, per CPU, perform the following: Take the collected value and divide by the number of units in the polling interval, then multiply by 100 to get the percent impact. For example, if the metric collected is 50 milliseconds, and the collection period is 20 seconds, divide 50ms by 20000ms, times 100%, and you get ...

By default, Member Servers and Clients should use NTDS as their time source. As mentioned above, this is provided by a thread of the PDC Emulator's AD-DS role. The PDC Emulator should sync to at least two - preferably three - reliable time sources (RTSs). I say two, as it's possible for the PDC Emulator to drop its own "reliable time source" flag if it ...

Do you need to evict the host from the cluster in order to do this? - No. Do Windows clusters care if each host uses a physically different NIC port relative to other hosts? - No.

There is a step by step migration guide at http://blogs.technet.com/b/canitpro/archive/2013/03/24/step-by-step-migrating-from-vmware-to-microsoft-hyper-v-server-2012.aspx. ; which uses MVMC. Option 3 is to start with option 2 and once you've observed some conversion times, see if option 1 is feasible. As far as your other questions go, Can't comment- no ...

Run Get-VMSwitch then Remove-VMSwitch "name". Once you've done that, your Hyper-V console should work. Then just create a new one.
