Invalid scsi typ" after importing physical image to ESX server

Hello, I have performed a warm conversion of a physical server with WMWARE converter which ended in two files "server.vmdk",  and the config file "server.vmx"

I have copied these to my ESX server and added the vmx file to my inventory and now have a virtual machine.

When I start the VM it reports

'Invalid scsi device type "plainDisk"
Failed to configure scsi0

Not sure what to do next.

Any help much appreciated
Jo

You should convert the physical server directly to the ESX server, you should also make sure you're using the LSI controller.  Since you've already converted to a VMWare workstation/server virtual machine you can try convert this to the ESX server.
