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)
