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.
