HI Guys

Whats the best practice when migrating a dc or any other important server using VMware converter standalone

is it best to do a p2v with standalone converter I have heard that sometimes this method fails or
is it best to do a backup, create the sever in esx and restore the backup onto the new dc in esx

or another way
