Hi All

I have some exported Xen Server VMs in .xva format.
I need to import them into ESX.
How do I best (easiest and free!) do this?
Have tried Xen Convert and VMWare Converter but they are mainly P2V or they dont support the current exported format.
Thanks
Paul.

i just used the VMWare standalone converter and converted the machines as running machines.
It worked fine.
