How to V2V, V to V Conversions for Hyper-V, VMware, VirtualBox

In the video below, we show how simple it is to set up a V2V Conversion for Hyper-V. The steps for Hyper-V, VMware, and VirtualBox differ only in the target format selected: VHD / VHDX, VMDK (VMware), and VDI (VirtualBox).
The main step when converting a virtual machine from one platform to another or one format to another, is to convert the virtual disk/s of the virtual machine. BackupChain can do this while the VM is running without affecting the VM at all and it’s still able to get a 100% consistent, good live conversion of the VM. Naturally, the VM can also be turned off for the conversion, if you prefer.

You simply select the virtual disk file of the VM (VHD / VHDX / VMDK / VDI) and select a target path and file format (same choice of formats for the target file). Once the conversion is complete, live or offline doesn’t matter, you would proceed as you would with a P2V conversion. Have a look at the Hyper-V P2V steps, VMware P2V Steps, or VirtualBox P2V Steps.

The process boils down to creating a VM in the platform of you choice and then adding the virtual disks you have converted with BackupChain. It’s very simple and straightforward.
Our technical support team will be happy to assist you if you run into any issues. The license required for this feature is either “Server Enterprise for PCs” or “Server Enterprise” or Platinum.

Don’t forget to select “Apply Universal Boot Settings” if you convert from one virtualization platform to another.
