VMware ESX 3.x VM to VMware Server 1.0.1VM

There are two techniques you can use to migrate a VMWESX 3.x virtual machine to VMWSVR.

  1. Create a new VMWSVR VM and point its disks to a copy of a snap of your ESX VM disks
  2. Copy entire snap (inc .vmx file) to VMWSVR then delete “catalog” file and rename .vmdk file(s)

XEN and rPath

It really does only take 10mins to create a XEN dom0 host with a XEN domu guest if you use rPath !
