VMware slow copy over network (less than 500KB)

We're in the middle of SBS 2003 migration to Exchange 2010; migrating the MBX's to the Exch 2010.
All the enviorment is based on VMware vSPhere 4.0, and although we've turned off most of the VM's on the hosts (2 different hosts), the data is being copied very very slow, 500KB/s.

Both NIC's on the hosts are synced with 1000Mb full duplex, and I'm sure that both hosts are can support much better migration speeds.

I would appreciate ANY help, since we need to migrate 60GB, and the maintenance window is closing fast.

Thx

you could take a look at http://forums.techarena.in/windows-server-help/1052852.htm .

Also, what are the nic types in each system and if you try to copy in opposite direction or to/from a different system is the speed any better?

I think the VM is faulty, big time.
We're rolling back to the SBS2003.

Thx for the advice!
