I installed VM Ware on a destination server and went through the configuration (see Attachment) with no issues. However, I do not see the image from the source  (192.168.0.99) machine on the destination (192.168.0.98)  machine.

Did you convert this to vSphere, VMware Server, VMware Player?...

Did you look on the datastore location?

Did you look in the folder location (if VMware Server, Workstation, Player)?

1) Converted to VMware Server

2) Where will I find the datastore location. When I boot into the destination server I get the option of Disk 0, Partition, Network.

3) How do I get to the folder location? (VMware)

Here is the User Guide for VMware Server: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vmserver2.pdf; reference pg. 110 that discusses Datastores.

the datastore location in VMware Server is defined as a drive and folder path.

as vmware server is hosted on Windows, browse ing the host disk will find the folder

Each time I reboot the Destination VMware server it takes me to a page that asks me to choose:

F2 - Customize

F12 (restart or shutdown)

Hm...ok, so you didn't convert to VMware Server, but to ESX or ESXi (vSphere). So, now you need to log into ESX/i. Open a web browser then connect to your ESX/i host: http://IPofHost. Click the Download vSphere Client link. Install it on your local workstation, then log into your host with it's IP, root, then the root password. You should then (hopefully) see your VM you just converted.

okay, you are using VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi)

VMware Server is an older product
download the client and connect to server

once connected to host, you will see VM, datastore, and be able to interact with VM.

You can reference vSphere 5 Guides here:
http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html; if you have a legacy version, just click on the version on the right side of the webpage
