If you want to migrate a VM from Hyper-V to VergeIO, there are some steps you need to follow. Aaron Reed, a Solutions Architect at VergeIO, walks us through the steps to migrate a VM from Hyper-V to VergeIO.
Before moving the Hyper-V VM to VergeIO, it's important to log into Hyper-V to verify the VM settings. The RAM, CPU, disk, networking, and any other important settings should be checked. Once the settings are verified, shut down the VM and Hyper-V. This ensures that you have a clean, consistent copy when you move the Hyper-V VM disks over to VergeIO.
After shutting down the VM, the next step is to copy the Hyper-V VM disks to VergeIO. This can be done by copying the VHD or VHDX disks into the VergeIO media image repository. This is a simple process of copying the disk through the VergeIO interface from a mapped drive from your Hyper-V environment.
Finally, you will create a new VergeIO VM using the imported Hyper-V VM disks. Start by creating the VM in VergeIO, then assign and import the Hyper-V disk to the new VM. VergeIO automatically does this in the interface. Then set up and assign the network game, start the new virtual oVM, and confirm that the VM is up and running.
In conclusion, migrating a VM from Hyper-V to VergeIO can be a simple process if you follow these steps. Ensure that you verify the settings of the Hyper-V VM, shut it down before copying, and create a new VergeIO VM with the imported Hyper-V VM disks. By doing so, you will have a clean, consistent copy that is up and running in VergeIO.
