I need to move an SBS2003 VM to a new datastore on an ESXI server but I only have a small window of time in order to do so. The VM is about 225 GB and using VMware Convertor will not covert it fast enough for me so I would like instead to restore an image of the server drives I have taken using StorageCraft Shadowprotect to a new VM I have created in the new datastore. On the new VM, I noticed ESXI won't allow me to set the same MAC address as the orginal VM. ESXI gives me the message: "Mac address you entered is not in the valid range". What can I do about this? Besides the MAC address, are there anything else I will need to update on the new VM once I recover the image of the old VM to it?
