Version Support Information

The VMWare website and KB's are at times very confusing.  I cannot seem to find an answer to my issue.  Was hoping you all can help.  Do any of the VMWare converters support Hyper-V 2012 R2 U1?  I get an error saying not supported when trying to do a source guest on a Hyper-V server.  U1 has been out a long time and I find it hard to believe that its not supported yet.  From a security perspective its a mandatory patch.  I was hoping I am just doing something wrong or missing a step.

I am able to do a powered on conversion but in my environments the servers I am trying to convert will have changed too much in the time it takes to convert across the network and since the network is required for conversion the service will be up.

Thanks in advance!

HyperV2 is not supported for powered off conversions, however you can convert your machines as physical sources. In case of heavy loaded machines there is an incremental conversion that could help you.
