Description

Note: This cmdlet is deprecated and might be removed in a future release. We recommend that you do not use this cmdlet.

The Convert-IscsiVirtualDisk cmdlet converts an iSCSI virtual disk to a 4K sector aligned advanced virtual disk 1.0 format. If an attempt is made to load a VHD created by the iSCSI Target 3.3, the VHD must be converted by running this cmdlet. This cmdlet performs copy and conversion at the same time. A remote file share or local path for both source and destination path can be specified.

Note: Use this cmdlet if iSCSI Target 3.3 differencing virtual disks are migrated to Windows Server 2012 R2 differencing virtual disks.

Examples

Example 1: Convert a VHD

PS C:\> Convert-IscsiVirtualDisk -Path "\\zamfirsvr\VHDs\test.vhdx" -DestinationPath "\\win8svr\VHDs\test.vhdx"

This example copies and converts the VHD named test.vhdx from \\zamfirsvr\VHDs\ to \\win8svr\VHDs. The VHD named test.vhdx can be loaded after the conversion.
