A VM was sent to me as .vhdx instead of .vhd and I need to import it into xenserver which supports .vhd but not .vhdx.
I looked at the following solutions:
The problem with using powershell, is you need to have either Windows2012 or Windows 8.1 but with the Hyper-V role installed to get the proper cmdlets.
I only have access to Windows 2008r2 and Windows 8.1 without the Hyper-V role installed.
My other options would have been to attempt to gain access to a server with Hyper-V and use powershell to run the convert-vhd command on the remote server but I am not even sure if powershell commands can be ran like that. (ie: running hyper-v cmdlets on a remote server which doesn't have hyper-v cmdlets.)
