I have some Linux servers running in Virtuozzo containers and want to migrate them to a Vmware ESX server. Does anyone have any experience of this and could let me know if this is even possible?
Many thanks

Logically if you could create disk image(using disk imaging tools) of the linux server to an image file then copy out the image file, you can actually convert that image file into esx directly as a VM via free vmware converter http://www.vmware.com/products/converter/

There are couple of disk imaging tools you can try such as http://www.acronis.com/backup-recovery/server-linux/

I will need to investigate the backup solutions suggested.
