VMware 6, moving VMDK files to new file server.

Last Modified: 2015-08-23
We have 2003 AD server and have migrated all services DHCP, DNS, FMOS, Schema etc to a new 2012 R2. Now I want to move or attach the existing VMDK files from the old 2003 server to the 2012 R2 folder/machine.

If I go to edit settings of the 2012 VM and add disk, then try to browse the VMDK file location, it never shows any disks.

Can I not do this?
