Release Notes


V9 Build 75: Added features and improvements (12 November 2018)

Download here
  • Added functionality for converting virtual machines between hypervisors: migrate a Hyper-V VM to an ESXi server or an ESXi VM to a Hyper-V host. Conversion does not alter the basic VM settings: the number of CPU sockets, amount of RAM, the number of network adapters, and the number of disks. Note that network adapters must still be configured in hypervisor after conversion. vCenter Server will be supported starting with the next release.
  • Added functionality for converting physical machines to virtual ones on Hyper-V and ESXi servers. Just start the utility on the physical machine and convert it to the virtual one located on the remote hypervisor server. The utility uses VSS snapshots while reading disk data from the live machine to preserve data consistency. Physical-to-virtual machine conversion is possible for the following OS: client Windows – from Vista through Windows 10; Windows Server– from Windows Server 2008 R2 through Windows Server 2016.
  • Added functionality for converting a physical disk or volume to a virtual disk container. It is possible to convert volumes selectively to save disk space (thin provisioned containers) and time (thick provisioned containers).
  • Added support for ESXi servers up to the 6.7 version. Remote server access functionality works for ESXi servers from version 5.5 through 6.7. VMDK containers of older ESXi versions are supported too.
  • The utility has been refactored and is built on x64 architecture, so it requires an x64 OS for operation starting from this version.
  • Fix for processing KVM QCOW2 containers: cluster size changed to 4k, the operation for large disks fixed.

V8 Build 170: Added features and improvements

  • Fix for an error that occurred when trying to convert a file of a running Hyper-V virtual machine.
  • Fix for the "Internal error (8) [997]" error: a conversion error occurred when VHDX was a destination format and the source image size exceeded 2TB.
  • Fix for Image Format page skipping in the wizard, in case of a remote Hyper-V Server serving as a source. It required a step back to select the destination image format.
  • Fix for moving back in the wizard since it skipped pages in some cases.
  • Fix for an error that occurred in the wizard for incorrect Hyper-V hostnames.
  • The ability to create a new folder on an ESX server when selecting the destination location has been added.
  • The option to convert a new file without restarting the wizard has been added.

  • Added functionality for converting VMDK files directly to VMware ESXi Server.
  • Now it is not necessary to use local machine as a destination for VMDK file and copy it to ESXi server after conversion.
  • Added functionality for converting VHD/VHDX files directly from MS Windows Hyper-V Server.
  • Now it is not necessary to copy source VHD/VHDX file to local machine to convert it.
  • Added functionality for converting VHD/VHDX files directly to MS Windows Hyper-V Server.
