I am having trouble importing a Virtual Machine into VMWare ESXi.  The original virtual machine was created and is on VMWare Virtual Server 2.0.  I used the ovftool so that I could convert and then use the Import Virtual Appliance tool in the Infrastructure Client.  However, when I finally go through the import process I get the error: The hardware family of the OVF package is not supported: vmx-07. I found that this error message had to do with the virtual hardware version.  I was able to roll the hardware version back to version 6 by using VMWare converter.  Still no luck.  I get the same error except with vmx-06.  The one virtual machine that I created on ESXi has hardware version 4.  Does anyone know a way around the hardware version issue?  Thanks for any help in advance.

I got it. I had to use VMWare Converter to import it directly into ESXi.
