Do not know anyone performed v2v conversion from 3.51 to ver 5.1
.I have moved my vm from 3.51 to 5.1 esxi host.
I have selected the hardware ver9 during the conversion.
I am not sure whether it is the way to go or not.
Some reason my vm is shutting it off after the conversion.
I noticed this only after network card connection enabled.

3.5 to 5.1 V2V is fine.

I would use version 7 VM.

What OS?

Are they shouting down or crashing?

Is the shutdown initiated by Vmware or the guest OS. Check the VM's log and guest OS logs.

Are your 3.5.1 and 5.1 host running the same or different hardware
