MSA 2040 transfer dedicated LUN for Vcenter on Windows Server 2019 for Hyper-V.

Good afternoon.

The situation is. We have a cluster on Vmware Vcenter hypervisor-on MSA 2040 storage with Dedicated moons for virtual machines.
We plan to move to a Windows Server 2019-based HYPER-V hypervisor. use the same MSA2040. Tell me can I peremabiri the moon from one hypervisor to another without data loss and on a Hyper-v Host c is Connected moons data *.VMDX re-convert to .*The VHD.

Hello,

There are ways to convert a VMDX to a VHD but they have strict limitations that depend upon the versions of ESXi, VM workatations, online converstions (not supported), anti-virus software, security settings, and network settings to name a few. There is risk doing this type of a conversion.

If you are concerned about data loss, my suggestion is:

- Take a full backup of all the data
- Create a new Hyper-V
- Copy the data to the new Hyper-V

Cheers,
Shawn
