I'm involved in Server consolidation project using VMware. I could successfully convert several physical servers to VMware VM using vCenter vConvertor. However am facing problem in converting a VM hosted on XEN server to VMware VM. After the conversion is done, when I tried to bring up the converted VM, it failed at boot. It says the Kernel couldn't be loaded. I tried few options to resolve this problem but couldn't succeed. Please help me in this. Please let me know if you have a standard steps for converting a Xen VM to VMware VM.
