Timeout on migrating VM from VMWare server to Vsphere

Hi,

I have a VMWare Server installation with VMs that I'm trying to migrate to a new Vsphere server using the VMWare Go site.  It starts copying the files and then eventually times out.  Is this timeout value configurable, or is there another way to do the migration?  This VM has a 16 and 30 gig drive defined.

Thanks!

Download and install VMware Converter 4.3 standalone (http://www.vmware.com/products/converter) and use that to do your migration.

Good Luck

Hi,

Thanks, will check that out.  I'd always thought that was strictly a p2v package.

No - it does v2v also, and will even handle many popular backup image formats

Wow...was THAT ever a lot faster!  And I didn't even have to tweak the configuration settings as I did with the GO site.  

I have several other questions I'll bundle in a separate question.

Thanks much!
