Hyper-V VM export RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have one Hyper-V VM with 100 GB C drive and 8 TB of D Drive. We are planning to migrate this VM to Azure with Azure ASR. Since, Azure ASR does not support this VM due to data disk size, we want to export the VM locally with only boot drive and then upload the VHD to Azure.

    Is it possible to export the Hyper-V VM with only C drive and exclude D drive ?

  • Yes, you can also remove the disk from VM Settings, but will need to stop it first.

  • You could remove the disk before exporting.

  • Thanks, i was looking to get this done without any downtime. But it seems, there is no other way we can export with only specific drive. we have to manually remove the drive.
