    Risk with adding Hyper-V?


    Is it a risk to add Hyper-V on our local server or does it have any impact? Just an extra tool?

    Need to convert a VHDX to VHD (file) due to migration to Azure. (Windows 2012 Server R2)

    You do not need to install Hyper-V to convert a vhd to a vhdx file if that is what you want to do.

    Simply create a vhdx file of same or larger capacity as vhd file.

    TThen mount both vhd and vhdx files as drive and clone vhd to vhdx using Macrium Reflect Free.

    Or just use Convert-VHD –Path c:\test\MY-VM.vhdx –DestinationPath c:\test\MY-NEW-VM.vhd

    Converting Hyper-V .vhdx to .vhd file formats for use in Windows Azure
