Hi Muhammed,

If you follow the best practices for SQL you can use Move to migrate the cluster. Alternatively,  you can build a new VM on AHV following all the best practices, then take a backup of the DB and restore it to the new VM.

If it’s one VM you could do it manually. Take a look at this KB-1697 Manually Migrating VMs from a Hyper-V cluster to a Nutanix Hyper-V cluster using Export / Import. Let me know if that makes sense.
