How do I move a VM between virtual Centers?

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?

If these are not sitting on the same SAN and have visibility to the same LUNS then you will have to copy it manually using SFTP.

You could always us vConverter to do this.  Just point to source and distination and you can do it right away or schedule it.  

Otherwise I would use Veeam FastSCP to copy VMs to a temporary location and then to new location.
