I've tried the converter against the raw files, but I get "unable to obtain hardware info". I've tried to run it against the running machine, but the VM Helper fails to start on the target machine.
I've even just tried copying the VMDK/VMX files over to my iSCSI device and start the VM, but it won't since it's IDE and not SCSI.
What's the best way to move this VM over?
convert the vmdk with vmware-vdiskmanager
vmware-vdiskmanager.exe -r existing.vmdk -t 4 esx-ready.vmdk
adjust vmx so that it references esx-ready.vmdk
upload vmx-file and esx-ready.vmdk to new directory on esx
register vmx with Datastorebrowser
