Yes, we've done this many times for clients, there are no issues, as long as you follow the well written guides. But any issues, jsut ask here.

http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1021635 has links to 2 KB's for the more common problems found during the migration, but most migrations go through without a hitch.

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

If you have the VC 2.5 U5 installation media, go into the vpx directory and run licenseserver.exe

If you go to http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/datacenter_downloads/vmware_infrastructure_3/3_5 and select Drivers & Tools, you can find a download there for it, too.  It says 64192 so I suspect that this is an old version of it that may not install/run on x64 systems.  If it doesn't, then you may be stuck downloading VC 2.5 U5 or U6 and then running the .exe that I described above.

Install the license server on any Server 2003 32 bit server temporarily.
