i recently inherited a nightmare! Anyone know how to configure an ESX 3.0 host to connect to a NAS device using a crossover cable on an available NIC port? i need a FAST method to move a VM (7) to this NAS but cannot waste hours doing so. copies over this horrible network take forever. cloning does not seem to be an option in 3.0 as it is in later versions. there is no option to export to OVA.
what i was able to do so far was mount the NAS as a datastore in ESX, but again the only option i am seeing is to do a straight copy
