Hello,

I have to move a Windows 2003 server running on ESX4.1u1 and need to move it to another physical server that is running an older version of VMware (help>Host OS version: (null) 6.0.6001 SP1) on a Windows 2008 server. I tried to simply copy the vmdk file to the older server but received errors. Can anyone help me with how to move the guest OS to an older VMware version?


Thanks

you will have to power off the guest, or if you have VMotion use that
