how to import / convert old GSX vmdk machine

We are running ESX 4.1 now, we have a very old vmdk file that used to belong to a GSX environmet.

How can I import this machine into our new environment?

we do not have vcenter running, so we can't use the import function.

thx.

You can use the free stand alone version of Converter - http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/datacenter_downloads/vmware_vcenter_converter_standalone/4_0

GSX 3 vmdks should work with Converter
GSX 2.5 vmdks may need some more work - but its possible

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - send a message via skype "sanbarrow"
