Converter fails to attach disks after conversion

Postby pcmm » Tue Jan 29, 2019 7:53 pm

We're testing v2v converters for an upcoming initiative to migrate from vmware to Hyper-V. We're finding the available converters each have their own (in some cases significant issues) Which brings me to the Starwind converter. Seems to convert quickly and reliably but 100% of the time it successfully converts the VM but also 100% of the time NEVER attaches the converted disks to the VM it creates in hyper-V 2016. Is this expected behaviour? we've done about 20 test conversion so far and while it works, this quirk is a bit unsettling and does cause a work flow slow down when converting a large number of VM's We'd like to be able to script the conversions but the failure to attach the disks as part of the conversion causes issues.

Could you please provide us with the logs from V2V converter?

Re: Converter fails to attach disks after conversion

I have the same issue. I'm converting from ESXi 6.5 onto a Windows Server 2019 Hyper-V host. The machines get converted quite happily but each time, without fail, the vdisks fail to attach to the new VM. It doesn't matter whether it's a V2V or P2V conversion, same issue each time.

You can manually attach the disks to the new VM and it all works after that, it's just an extra step. One other bit of feedback, when the converter converts BIOS VMware machines with SCSI disks to Hyper-V VMs, it generates a G1 VM and converts the disks as SCSI disks in Hyper-V. G1 Hyper-V VMs won't boot from a SCSI controller, can the converter be set to attach the primary hard disk as an IDE disk?

I have attempted to attach some logs to this post but its saying that .log and .txt files aren't allowed so I'll put an example in the post instead

Any idea when a new build is coming? I have two virtual farms to convert from VMware to Hyper-V over the next couple of weeks and a fix to this issue, while not entirely essential, would be appreciated.
