How do I migrate a VM from one VC to another?

Hello,

We have two Virtual Centers. One in our production network and one in our lab. I need to move a VM that was built in the lab into the production Virtual infrastructure. What is the best way to do this? I suspect I will have to SSH to the ESX host on which the VM resides and move the files manually? Should I make it into a template first? Is there an easier way to do it?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
