Importing vmware 2.0 into ESXi
Posted on 2011-03-14
I have successfully imported one of my vmware server 2.0 images into vmware ESXI 4.x using the vmware vcenter converter standalone. I was not able to perform a vmware infastructure virtual machine import, but I was able to impor using the "vmware workstatioin or toher vmware virtual machine" choice.
Today, I tried to import an image for netware and GroupWise, and I still cannot perform a direct method. So, i tried the second choice, which was successful last time.
When I try to import/convert my network image I get an error message saying, "unable to obtain hardware information for the selected machine". This image still works in vmware 2.0, and I made an exact copy of it and copied the files to my local partition. But, I still cannot import it.
Are there limitations when importing a vmware netware image? How can I get around this import error?
