Hi,

Is there anything that I should know about converting a Netware 6.5 VMware
virtual machine to Hyper-V, and is this even possible?

Cheers
Headsup

System Center Virtual Machine Manager contains a feature for converting
VMWare virtual machines to Hyper-V.

Hi Dusko,

I was aware of this, but I did not have much success, the conversion seemed
to take place okay, and I did manage to start up the converted VM, but when
Netware tries to leave the DOS session to start the Server it just stops.

That is it stops doing anything and just sits there with a flashing cursor.

I'm a bit suspicious of the fact that the original virtual drive was a fixed
size of 10Gb and now its only 1.75Gb. I have a sneaky suspicion that the
conversion only picked up the Fat partition and not the Netware Volumes.
