    Copy ESXi 4.0 VM outside ESXi server and start using it

      Hi,

       

       

      I want to know if it's possible to copy the VMs stored in the Datastore of ESXi 4.0 server that i can just upload outside the server, say in a workstation/external hard drive and start using it straightaway. The reason am asking is we have some scenarios whereby our demos are being done outside office and therefore you are required to carry the VMs in a laptop or external hard drive. I have been using VMWare Converter 4.0 to convert back the ESXi VM to VMWare Server but this is time consuming, is there any other way to do this process much faster or any VMWare product like player or workstation that can run ESXi VMs without conversion.

       

       

      Looking forward to your feedbacks.
