Hi,

Has anyone gotten the Cloudera Hadoop quickstart VM to run in ESXi 6.5 or above?  I've tried to clone it using VMware Workstation to an ESXi 6.5-6.7 hardware range but the upload fails.  Looks like the disk formats aren't compatible.

Running one host on 6.5 and two others on 6.7.

Thanks!

Use VMware Converter to CONVERT the VM from Workstation to ESXi!

Thanks, Andrew.  The conversion built into Workstation doesn't work?  When cloning it asks for a target environment.
I thought converter only works on physical/remote machines.  This is already a VM.

Wow.  Been way too long since I used that.  Had forgotten it does VMs as well.  
Thanks, Andrew!
