The process of using CLONE will MERGE all the Snapshots into the Parent disks. This is to be expected.

Moving a VM with Snapshots can result in a failed move, and it's not advisable to move a VM with snapshots.

If you want to maintain the virtual disks and snapshots, you will need to copy the files manually.

e.g. Use WinSCP to download/copy all the files manually, between servers.

 HOW TO: VMware Snapshots :- Be Patient

Please note performance of the VM running on a snapshot will be poor, compared to VM not running on a snapshot.
