We have 2 physical machines both running VMware ESXi 4.1.0

One of the machines has 4 virtual machines on it, the other is a brand new fresh install with none.

I need to move 2 of the virtual machines from one box to the other and never done this before..

There is some software on the machine called Veeam, I had a play around and managed to do a scheduled copy and it copied the virtual machine from one machine to the other, however when I login to the fresh machine i still see no machines on it...

Am i missing a step ?

Many thanks,
