Hello bench3,

Have you installed the latest HP Store Ever drivers on StarWind VTL host as well as on the client host running Data Protector software?

Re: bulk convert vhd to vmkd

Hi Victor. You should use console version instead (not StarV2V.exe but StarV2V c .exe) :) Just create a .bat file and run it. Should look something like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\StarWind Software\StarWind V2V Image Converter\StarV2Vc.exe if=g:\virtvol1.vhd ot=vmdk_f of=h:\virtvol1.vmdk vmdktype=...

This means Essentials host can only provide dedicated storage instead of being a member of FC. There is an alternative option though. You can use 2 servers 1 Standa...

Re: Azure experience

Hello!

We have prepared a template which automatically deploys StarWind 2 Node cluster to Azure.

It could be a great option for you to try: https://github.com/starwinddeploy/azure-sw-cluster
