If you want to try, this sequence worked for me:
- shutdown the VM in XenServer
- Export it somewhere so you can work on the VHD Virtual Hard Disk File (I have build an NFS Virtual OpenFiler on the new server and connected to both virtualization server)
- with the aid of http://www.winimage.com/ Professional, under "Disk" you can find "Convert Virtual Hard Disk Image"
- convert to VMDK

Good luck!

Okay. I've used winimage to convert the ".xva" to a ".vmdk".

Now how do I get this into VMware?

I uploaded it to datastore [datastore1], and created a new VM.
When asked "Select a Disk" I used the option "Use an existing virtual disk.....", and selected the ".vmdk".
Unfortunately this did not boot...


Did I do something wrong here?

Yes VMDK exported by WinImage it's an old format of VMDK (4 if I remember correctly)
Now with VMware converter convert from VMDK to Vsphere

Hmmmm.

My VMware converter does not have the option to convert from VMDK to Vsphere!

Are you talking about the "VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client", or some other VMware converter?
