Sun VirtualBox Conversion to HyperV
Hi I've setup a VM using Sun VirtualBox as I work on a Mac. Everything is working fine and the VM is functioning as it should. Now i want to move this to our 2008 R2 server. I have two options here. One is to convert the Sun Virtual box files to HyperV format so i can run these from the server or the other alternative is to install virtual box on the server as well as HyperV and copy the files over.
I really would like to convert the machine to HyperV. I've looked all over the internet and can't seem to get anywhere. I was just wondering if any of you guys have done the same and could give me a point in the right direction?

I've had nothing but good experiences using Disk2VHD for P2V, so I would rate that as a good option.

Dont forget to uninstall any "Virtualbox Additions" from the VDI before you convert it to VHD!

I would second this- and also the advice to uninstall your VBox additions before carrying out the conversion (although I have actually carried out a conversion without doing this and without anything bad (TM) happening).

Thanks Guys! It worked fine. I can now create everything i need on a testing machine and then swap it over to HyperV using the conversion tool. Mint
