Ok, I'll move this to the right forum in a minute, no worries.


Short answer is Yes, there is a way to do it for AHV to a non-Nutanix ESX cluster.


It is an unsupported procedure, but we have it documented in KB 3059. You can get a copy of that internal KB from support by submitting a support ticket on portal.nutanix.com for NX or SX deployments, or submitting a ticket through your respective OEM for HX or XC.

If this was AHV > Nutanix ESX cluster, you'd have a much easier method to do this, with cross hypervisor DR.

Yea, its possible, it takes a little doing.

What's your use case? Do you want to pull something you have set up in CE to ESXi? or some other configuration?

Hi Jon,
Thnaks for your reply. I'm not using CE, I'm using pro edt. I move a lot of VM esx to AHV but our customer asking to me it. He has a prepared VM on AHV cluster and want use as a tepmlate vm on another traditional ESX cluster. I'm not sure if it's working I export vm from AHV and import again to ESX.

Have you tried before? is it true way?
