Part3 Migrate Existing Fusion7 (native) Os X VM.
Upload the VM and add the necessery .vmx from above at the end of file.
I add a failure in the second HDD stating it was unreadable and I had to format it ;( huhuhuh !
So I uploaded it via CyberDuck SFTP, deleted the second Hdd from the VM, added the new freshly uploaded and had a failure preventing boot.
a bit of googling and here is the magic stuff (see usefull sources at the end of the post).
**convert the drive locally, then upload it, then add it back to the VM.
cd /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library
./VMware-vdiskmanager -r “/Volumes/MINIVMDATAS/Virtual Machines/OS X 10.10 Server – ESXiDev.vmwarevm/Virtual Disk 2-cl2-000001.vmdk” -t 4 “/Volumes/MINIVMDATAS/Virtual Machines/VMDKsConvert/Virtual Disk 2-cl2-000001.vmdk”
./VMware-vdiskmanager -r “/Volumes/MINIVMDATAS/Virtual Machines/OS X 10.10 Server – ESXiDev.vmwarevm/Virtual Disk 2-cl2.vmdk” -t 4 “/Volumes/MINIVMDATAS/Virtual Machines/VMDKsConvert/Virtual Disk 2-cl2.vmdk”
VixDiskLib: Invalid configuration file parameter. Failed to read configuration file.
Creating disk ‘/Volumes/MINIVMDATAS/Virtual Machines/VMDKsConvert/Virtual Disk 2-cl2.vmdk’
Convert: 100% done.
Virtual disk conversion successful.
todo Next (maybe) :
- Create a Fresh VM in ESXi
- Upload locally converted disc(s) inside it
- Edit the VM so it uses the discs
- Duplicate a VM in OsX.
- Navigate inside the VM folder and convert the drives.
- Upload the whole stuff to ESXi
- use the IMPORT VM in VSphere Client
I have Snapshots, so I choose the -000001.vmk (just looked at the VM settings in Fusion).
Very Helpfull Sources
Unlocker, the Unlocker, the Magic Util :
Works fine in Workstation11 and ESXi6 as of testing.
