Convert VMDK to VHD

Q. How do I convert a VMDK file to VHD using MVMC version 3?

A. Once you have installed MVMC 3.0 you can either convert VMs using the MVMC graphic interface or using PowerShell. If you want to perform an offline VMDK to VHD conversion use the following:

#Download at

Import-Module ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter\MvmcCmdlet.psd1’

Get-Command -module mvmccmdlet

ConvertTo-MvmcVirtualHardDisk -SourceLiteralPath “S:\Templates\Win2012DC.vmdk” -DestinationLiteralPath “C:\ClusterStorage\VMs\Temp” `
-VhdType DynamicHardDisk -VhdFormat Vhdx
#If offline can disable the tools. If was online could uninstall from the source VM Uninstall-MvmcSourceVMTools
Disable-MvmcSourceVMTools -DestinationLiteralPath “C:\ClusterStorage\VMs\Temp\Win2012DC.vhdx”
