    Cardis, VMWare machines are stored in large files under /var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines by default. you can copy the vm drive image by shutting down the vm machine and then coping the root folder of that machine to the other vmware server. Then open the vmware console and goto File > Open and browse to the copied machines folder and select the VMX file.

    Note: The copied machine's VMX file must have executable permissions on the new vmware server.

    Good luck!
