We have a need to migrate some VMs that are in our vSphere 4 environment to physical servers, most likely to blades (HP BL460c G1s - G7s).  We are looking over the below from VMWare's site, just wanted to see what we are up against, what 3rd party utilities are being used in conjunction with this process, etc...
