I upgreaded my ESXi4 to ESXi5 with Install and preserve data store option. Now I want to use some of vms from previous datastore. How can I go about it ?
Will this recover my Snapshots as well ?
Welcome to the Community,
with "Install and preserve data store" rather than "Upgrade and preserve data store" the new ESXi installation does not know anything about the previously existing settings and VMs. What you need to do is to configure the ESXi host (e.g. network settings), then open your datastore using the datastore browser and right click each VM's .vmx file and select "Add to Inventory".
