SMA 500v - VMware vs. Hyper-V

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭

Hi,

next week a customer wants to switch from VMware to Hyper-V and I was checking the downloads. To my surprise the download size of the Hyper-V image is nearly 6 times the size of the VMware counterpart.

Are the requierments on Hyper-V are higher in general or is it just because of some other factors? Never worked with Hyper-V before in detail, so bear with me.

    Hi,

    well the size difference seems to be related of the representation of the virtual harddisk. The 700+ MB Download of the Hyper-V image just contain the virtual harddrive, no nice .OVA template like for VMware.

    It seems that a migration from VMware to Hyper-V works, the settings imported. BUT one minor hickup occurs, I can't restart the SMA, when clicking the restart button the message shows up that the appliance is restarting, but nothing happens for a minute or two and then I'am back at the login page. The appliance wasn't restarted.

    Is this a bug or caused by the settings import?

    What version of the firmware are you on?

    Hi @MasterRoshi,

    I'am running 10.2 on this deployment.

    There was an issue similar to this on Azure on 10.2 (SMA-1195). Can you do another 'reboot' and check the System -> Status section to see if the SSL VPN service was restarted?

    I saw a message "SSLVPN restarted" in the log after trying the reboot.

    I have updated it to include HyperV as a platform. It will be fixed in 10.2.0.1.
