Convert VMware to Hyper-V via CLI

Postby [email protected] » Thu Nov 21, 2019 9:03 pm

Hello,

I am looking for some assistance in converting a bunch of VM's from VMware to Hyper-V. I have been l looking at the documentation, but find it vague. If anyone has done this and could help out.

The scripts examples all show that you need to specify the file name, but what if you have multiple files attached to your VM's?

This is what I have so far, am I on the right track?

V2V_ConverterConsole.exe convert in-host_type=esx in_host_address="0.0.0.0" in_host_username="root" in_host_password="PASSWORD" in_vm_name="SVR-01" out_host_type=win out_host_address="localhost" out_host_username="WINUSER" out_host_password="WINPASS" out_vm_name="SVR-01" out_file_name="C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\VM\disk1.vhdx" out_file_type="ft_vmdk_ws_thick"

Thanks everyone,
Steve

The GUI version of V2V Converter is single-threaded, but the solution features a command-line interface that enables you to run a batch script and convert multiple VMs at a time. Here are the commands and parameters which may come in handy: https://www.starwindsoftware.com/v2v-he ... rface.html. Here is the thread on our forum where the user has encountered a similar problem: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4459 (see there for a *.bat file listing).
