ESXi 5.5 restore configs from backup

I'm moving my ESX to another server and wanted to restore my current configuration, I made the configBundle.tgz and put my new server to maintenance mode and ran the restore command but am receiving the following error, could anyone help?

   msg = "Received SOAP response fault from [<cs p:1f019fa0, TCP:localhost:443>]: restoreConfiguration
fault.MismatchedBundle.summary",

it would appear the bundle you have is mismatched against the new server?

Are they the same or different ?

do you still have the old server, the following maybe better options

Backup

 vicfg-cfgbackup <conn_options> -s C:\backup.txt

Restore

 vicfg-cfgbackup <conn_options> -r

I do have the old server, they are not the same hardware what are the conn_options, I'm using the vim-cmd locally!

you will need to use the vCLI from a workstation....

backup

 vicfg-cfgbackup <conn_options> -s C:\backup.txt

restore

 vicfg-cfgbackup <conn_options> -r
