Need to migrate virtual fc host vm luns to vhdx

Hello,

I need to migrate 6 virtual HBA connected VMs off a node that is no longer clustered. Our new approach is to create .vhdx files instead.

Here is what I want to do:

Take a host, four luns

1 1024 GB

2. 1024GB

3 3036 GB

4 2048

move it off the old server and on to our newer existing HYPER-V cluster running windows 2012 R2. We would rather use .vhdx files than virtual HBAs. The host is running sql.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Connect the iSCSI lun to the hyper-v server/host. Create an NTFS or CSVFS file system on the iSCSI disk. Map the disk to a drive letter or add to cluster shared <Non-public info removed> volumes. Create a VHDX on the NTFS space. Add the VHDX to the virtual machine.
