I have a dell poweredge 2850 raid 5 with vmware esxi installed and 3 machines running. Im trying to copy them off using a windows xp pc using the vsphere client on to a usb drive attached to the windows xp with vsphere client on it. I was able to copy 2 machines ok. the 3rd is very large and i keep getting time out and errors and having to start over. I have tried veaam fast copy and it also errors out. the machine is a critical microsoft 2003 exchange server that i have to get off there. the machine in question runs perfect aand error free.. any ideas to move it. It is gong to moved to new dell server that is being shipped to us.
