  1. The nested virtualization refers to a virtual machine (VM) that runs inside another VM. In other words, the server's hardware can run the Hyper-V inside a VM, which itself runs on a Hyper-V too.
  2. Nowadays, when virtualization has become the major network service driver, organizations are migrating their Active Directory Users and Computers (P2V) for reasons such as cost, ease of management, and future expansion. Hence, knowing that VMs are using VHDs, Microsoft engineers have developed the Disk2vhd app to make the Physical Disk Drive (PHD) conversion to the Virtual Hard Disk (VHD). 
  3. Despite the reasons that may stand behind the decision to do Virtual to Physical (V2P) conversion, it is good to remind ourselves, in the technological era that we live in, that the trend is for Physical to Virtual (P2V) conversion. Other than that, it can be said that the hypervisor manufacturers, including Microsoft, will not encourage you to conduct V2P conversions.
