You should be able to "Add the Virtual Machine to your Inventory" and that should be it...

1.  Make a copy of the virtual machine (just in case).  Run it in vmware server, if it boots up upgrade vmware tools
2.  If there are issues use vmware converter to convert to a vmware server virtual machine, (especially if you want to resize volumes)
