I have taken over the management an old VMware host. I believe it is VMWare version 2 by what it says in the Control Panel/Programs of the Windows 2008 R2 server. I would like to convert/migrate one of the virtual machines to a Windows 2012 Datacenter R2 Hyper-V platform.
Using the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter v.3 it is unable to find the "Source". A message "Unable to contact VMware host machine." is displayed. The wizard is searching for a "vCenter server, ESX server, or ESXi Server". There is nothing on the host server that indicates it is any of those; just the VMware Server v. 220.127.116.1112 and VMware Remote Console Plug-in v. 18.104.22.168581. I suspect this to be the problem but I am unsure.
Can anyone provide a migration path? Is there a way to upgrade the VMware on the host server to version that can be converted to Hyper-V using MCMC?
