I have an OVF and a VMDK file. It was exported from VMWare. How can I import that into a Hyper-V? I do not have access to the VMWare server. I don't have System Center - just Hyper-V Manager. Any ideas?

import module using powershell

Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter\MvmcCmdlet.psd1"


ConvertTo-MvmcVirtualHardDisk -SourceLiteralPath C:\mypath\mydisk.vmdk -VhdFormat vhd -DestinationLiteralPath C:\mynewdisk.vhd


You can convert the OVF exported from VMware into a Hyper V host by using the Microsoft standalone software called Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter . You can download the OVF and convert it into Hyper V config folder which can be imported back into Hyper V. For further details, check this link : https://technet.microsoft.com/library/dn873998.aspx

  • Don't you need a server for that tool to work?
