    New SysInternals tool: Disk2vhd

    Spotted this on the Sysinternals RSS feed this morning and thought it might come in handy for anyone planning a physical-to-virtual migration to Hyper-V soon (as I am).

    Disk2vhd

    Disk2vhd is a utility that creates VHD (Virtual Hard Disk - Microsoft’s Virtual Machine disk format) versions of physical disks for use in Microsoft Virtual PC or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs). The difference between Disk2vhd and other physical-to-virtual tools is that you can run Disk2vhd on a system that’s online.
    Sounds handy, haven't had a chance to try it out yet though.

    Thanks very much. We have just used this to move some legacy servers from vmware to hyper-v. Couldn't get any other P2V tools to work and this one was instant.
