I’m planning to move a Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter Edition VM from Hyper-V 2012 R2 to AHV on AOS 5.10.2 today. I have created a similar (but not cloned) test VM in the environment and migrated it yesterday with no issues. UEFI worked fine. Today in my final prep I’m seeing that in newer versions of the Nutanix documentation (AOS 5+) that this migration and VM type (AHV with UEFI) is listed as Limited Support and “Not recommended for Production”.
Is this a showstopper?
Are other customers moving important production Gen 2 UEFI Hyper-V VMs to AHV?
Generation 2 VM (UEFI) migrated from Hyper-V to AHV
For information about configuring UEFI for VMs migrated from Hyper-V, see Post-Migration Tasks, Windows VMs
UEFI VM migrated from ESXi to AHV
The support levels in the second column are defined as follows:
· Limited support. Nutanix recommends that you not use the configuration in production. You can open a support case, and Nutanix will provide a workaround if one exists. However, no fixes or changes can be made to the product.
· Not supported. The configuration must not be used in production. Nutanix does not support this configuration.
