VMware - Copy a VM from one VMware env. to another

Hi,

Is there a way to copy a VM from one VMware env to another one (a completely different one)?

What would be the options to achieve this? When I say copy I mean the exactly same disk configuration, memory assigned to it..etc..

And is this an easy process or demand more time to set things up? (taking in consideration that both envs are already created and up and running but no connectivity between them..)

Maybe you guys can point me to a reliable link where I can refer to.

Tks,
Joao

If both environments have licensed versions of vmware you can use veeam zip to backup and restore..

@Andrew, Will it work if I restore the VM in a different VMware env.? \

What will happen to the disk configuration I have for this particular VM in the other env? I mean, this VM to be copied will have data with it and when I do the restore in the other VMware env., where this data will be written to?

It will be identical to the original! configuration and virtual disks.

You may need to change the networking, network on the new environment, depends how similar the new host is.
