Our company is looking to try out Hyper-V as a server virtualization solution so I am looking for the most efficient way to test everything out safely. My plan is to make a snapshot backup of each of the 10 VMware VMs (these are live production servers) and then use Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter to convert the snapshots into Hyper-V files. Then I would install Hyper-V services on a test machine running Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition and upload the converted VMs into Hyper-V. Being new to networking, does this sound like a solid plan? What potential issues could I run into?
Reading MVMC guides makes it seem like once the VM is converted and uploaded onto the destination server, it shuts itself down on the source. Is there a way to cleanly convert VMware snapshots into Hyper-V files?
Sorry if this post is confusing, please advise.
