I have migrated serveral VMs from ESXi to Hyper-V that have a single disk with no issue. Ones that have multiple disks are failing. The VM starts, but only the C;\ is available. The message at the end of the migration seems to indicate that it succeeded, however when I open the new Hyper-V VM, the additional disks are not the there.

The log file shows this error:
ErrorCode = 32773;
ErrorDescription = "'TRMSRV' failed to add resources. (Virtual machine ID 888B2292-A801-4039-A3E4-CA8D9F48FB6A)\n\nCannot add 'E:\\VMs\\TRMSRV\\Virtual Hard Disks\\TRMSRV_.vhdx'. The disk is already connected to the virtual machine 'TRMSRV'. (Virtual machine ID 888B2292-A801-4039-A3E4-CA8D9F48FB6A)";
ErrorSummaryDescription = "'TRMSRV' failed to add resources to 'TRMSRV'.\n\nCannot add 'E:\\VMs\\TRMSRV\\Virtual Hard Disks\\TRMSRV_.vhdx'. The disk is already connected to the virtual machine 'TRMSRV'. (Virtual machine ID 888B2292-A801-4039-A3E4-CA8D9F48FB6A)";
HealthState = 5;

Try converting the disks alone and recreate the VM. It looks like something is going sideways with the config file.

Thanks @yaroslav, but I think I sorted it another way.
The additional disks did get converted, but they weren't attached to the VM.

I went to Settings for the VM, selected the next drive, and pointed to the virtual disk file. Once the VM came up, I went to Disk Manager on the VM and brought the disks online. A bit of a manual process, but it worked.

Thanks for sharing your workaround. It looks like something went sideways with the VM config file. I am glad to read that you managed to sort it out.

Where is the "VM config file"?
I have done this conversion with several VM's, and had the same experience of missing the additional disks.

This is the VM configuration file. I doubt you can easily edit one for Hyper-V. You still can check the VMX file for an individual VM while the VM runs in ESXi.
