I created a VM template on a ESX 5.0 host.  I tried to clone that template to a host on 4.1 and get an error

"the virtual machine version is not compatible with the version of the host"

What can I do so I can use this template on the host running ESX 4.1?

Since the hardware version of the VM is different you need to convert it to a version suported by 4.1


I suggest yo use VMware vCenter Converter. to do this task.

Install the program and run it
select source and choose VMware Infrastructure virtual machine option to connect to your vCenter server.

After choose the machine you need to convert.

Specify destination with the same type "VMware Infrastructure virtual machine"

At this point u need to assign a new name to your VM and the datastore.

Now you have an option on the right size to change the Virtual Machine version from v7 or v8 to v4.


hope it helps
