With the new release of VM Server 2, can I transfer my VMs currently hosted on VM Player 2 (created with VM Server 1.x) to Server 2? Or do I still have to go through the downgrade process?
Server 2.0 uses a newer virtual hardware version, and should be able to handle the virtual machines directly. I would always suggest making a backup first.
vHW 7 = Server 2 // Player 2.5 // WS 6.5 // Fusion 2
vHW 6 = Player 2.0, WS 6.0, Fusion 1
then it's Server 1.0, ESX 3.0 etc
