I am trying to convert a LUN into vhd and get the following error:
PS C:\Users\administrator.CITRUS> ConvertTo-NaVhd -DestinationVhd /vol/dest/vhd/dlvm.vhd -SourceLun /vol/dest/vhd/lun1
ConvertTo-NaVhd : Converting LUN to VHD in a CIFS share is not supported.

The volumes are not shared by cifs and security style is unix.

I was also researching this functionality, though I don't currently have access to a gear to play with and test. I think that with this error message the toolkit is trying to say that the destination VHD should be a file on a mounted LUN rather than a native path. In the examples of the command that I've seen this was how the used it (i.e, they used '-DestinationVhd e:\ttt.vhd when used with '-SourceLun'')
If this is the case, maybe a two-stage conversion would work - have an extra LUN for this specific reason, convert to a VHD within the LUN, and then convert from the LUN to a file in the volume.
