Updating a VM migration

We did a stand alone migration of a physical server to VMWare last week, but left the physical server online until we got approval to bring the new VM online. In the mean time a vendor did a application install on the physical server after the P2V migration.

Do i need to do a new migration of the server or is there a way to update the new VM with the changes?

You either need to redo the P2V, or do the install on the VM when you bring it online, unfortunately :(
