Podcast: VMware Migration to Hyper-V Using SCVMM

2 minutes read

In this episode of Krome Cast, Tech IT Out, we provide an in-depth guide and demonstration of how to migrate from VMware to Hyper-V using System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).

This episode featuring Krome’s Commercial Director Sam Mager and Technical Ben Randall, explores the technical considerations required when embarking on a VMware migration to Hyper-V project, and shows two demonstrations of the migration process from VMware to Hyper-V using SCVMM.

The first VMware migration demo shows how to migrate a virtual machine running Windows Server 2016 and the second demo shows the migration of a virtual machine running Windows Server 2022. Note that the steps for migrating from Windows Server 2016 and 2019 are essentially the same.

From setting up virtual switches in VMware to initiating and monitoring the migration process in SCVMM, we provide detailed insights into every stage of the migration process.

Additionally, we explore alternative migration methods, such as using Veeam for seamless backups and restoration directly into Hyper-V, offering flexibility for different environments.

Our discussion extends to the preparatory work required for SCVMM installation, including prerequisites, SQL Server setup, and the importance of updating to SCVMM Update 2 for enhanced performance.

If you’re upgrading from VMware to Hyper-V and seeking to optimise your migration strategy, this guide equips you with the knowledge and best practices needed for a successful transition.
