we want to move several VM's running on a VMWare server over to a Hyper-V Server and we will be using SCVMM.
1: how do you get the vmdk files etc out of a VMWare enviroment on to a windows platform?
2: once you have them i believe the process is to add the to a library in SCVMM and the do a V2V conversion. - is this correct?

We are running side-by-side and maintaining our current VMWare licenses, but will not be purchasing anything additional.

We moved as soon as Hyper-V was available, although at the time we were using the old VMware server so it was a big step up for us. Have been on Hyper-V since.

A lot of new stuff in 2 DC's and it will be ESX and vSphere.

We currently have 7 VMWare hosts that are running about 30 of so guest servers. We will be moving to HyperV this summer, ours is mostly due to cost and the fact that we never use all the bells and whistles of VMWare. We are a K-12 school division if that sheds any light on the pricing angle :-)

Dunno about others, but what i have seen is people moving from a single vmware host to multiple Hyper-V hosts.
I haven't seen any large migrations from vmware to hyper-v.
Maybe that will change with hyper-v 3.

Just noticed this thread as I was about to post elsewhere.
Is there a significant movement from VMware to HyperV?
Is there a significant (measurable) number of users that are doing this?

You have a few ways to do this. If you are doing a few migrations then the tool that Joe pointed out is good. If you're doing more and want to have more control, then you'd set up VMM to connect to your vCenter and do a V2V conversion. If you have 100+ VMs then there's a new package solution based on System Center 2012 that is based on automation, self-service, and governance: http://www.hyper-v.nu/archives/hvredevoort/2012/04/virtual-machine-migration-toolkit/
