I have a client who are running vm's built on a VCenter 2.5 - I am building a new VCenter 5.1 environment for him. What is the best way for me to move these 2.5 vm's over to the new environment?
Can I literally just move these vm's to the new environment or do I need to v2v them or what is the best way to proceed?
Most important piece is the hardware revision levels and what version of esx they are running.
