We have 4 Server 2012 VM's that we host for a client using ESXi 5.5, we want to move these VM's off our system and onto a different hosting platform.
I was thinking I could just download the VMDK files for the associated servers, however that seems to take forever.
I was thinking, maybe I could export the servers to an OVF template, but I presume that would mean turning the VM off while it creates the template.
The final thing I thought of was using the Veem backup tool that I have installed, but again that would mean having the VM's off wouldn't it ?
Just trying to get a handle on what downtime might be required.
