I just upgraded from server 2.0 to ESXi. I imported the old vm's using:

vmkfstools.pl -i /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/SAV01.vmdk /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/SAV01_new.vmdk

They boot fine, but I can't get eth0 to come up.

How do I get the network to come up?

You need to enable the new NIC (most likely it is called ETH1). At least, that's what I had to do on my Ubuntu VM when I migrated it over.
