Hello

Does StarWind V2V-Converter support the convertion of MS VHD-images (made with Sysinternals Disk2vhd)
to VMDK(VMware)?

Thank you very much!

Bill

PS
At the moment I do only have a Windows2012 Srv to test it, but the VHD-images (made with Sysinternals Disk2vhd)
are not even visible/loadable into StarWind V2V-Converter :-(

StarWind V2V converter is compatible with multiple hypervisor products. Here's the list of supported virtual disk formats:
· VMware growable image. Designed to run in VMware Workstation`s environments. Disk space for this image is allocated on demand, so disk size of this image grows over time. It has *.vmdk extension.
· VMware pre-allocated image. Designed to run in with VMware Workstation`s environments. Disk space for this image is allocated at the moment of its creation and is fixed. It has *.vmdk extension.
· VMware ESX server image. Designed to run in with VMware vSphere environments. Disk space for this image is allocated at the moment of creation and it is fixed. It has *.vmdk extension.
· Microsoft Virtual Hard Disk growable image. Designed to be used with Hyper-V virtual machines. Disk space for this image is allocated on demand, so disk size of this image grows over time. It has *.vhd extension.
· Microsoft Virtual Hard Disk pre-allocated image. Designed to be used with Hyper-V virtual machines. Disk space for this image is allocated at the moment of its creation and is fixed. It has *.vhd extension.
