Moving Mac OS X VMware Fusion VMs to ESXi (via: Ask Different)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/23

Interesting read: vmware – Moving Fusion VMs to ESXi – Ask Different.

I was kind of expecting something like this, as VMware has been notoriously bad at proving Mac OS X tools (whereas their VMware Workstation for Linux is on par with their Windows product, Linux also lacks a vSphere Client and a standalone VMware vCentre Converter).

Good to have my expectations confirmed. Not so good that this is a tedious process.

Note that you need twice the disk size on your Mac, as you recreate the vmdk files on your Mac in a format that ESXi understands.

Oh well…

Note there are even more tedious ways, but good to know they exist.

I really wish VMware Fusion could do what you can do with VMware Workstation to manage your ESXi hosts (including Free ESXi) & VMs.
