Converter Standalone: Convert Workstation 16 Pro virtual machine to ESXi 6.5

Hello, I have been desperately trying for several days to transfer my Workstation 16 Pro VM to my ESXi 6.5.

 

I tried possibility 1 of the article https://www.ubackup.com/enterprise-backup/move-vmware-workstation-vm-to-esxi.amp.html

 

But when I want to create the VM from the OVF file I get an "Invalid configuration for device 0" error.

 

I looked on the Net and it is advisable to go through the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone tool, which I did but I also have an error that I do not understand: "Invalid configuration for device '2'" . What exactly is this device 2? And what can I do?

 

Thanks for your help.

Dumb it down !!!
ESXi 6.5 does not understand your complicated vmx-file - so simplify it and make it look easier.
If necessary show us your vmx.
