When copying VM to new VM host need to :

  1. enable ssh on both ESXI server (Host services)
  2. goto the VM through /vmfs/volumes/ ....
  3. To see the full disk, not just the definition, you need to rename the vmdk file: "mv xxxxxxx_0.vmdk xxxxxxx_0.vmdk.REMOVE"
  4. Dowload to desktop from one and upload to other ESXI (I've not found an sftp work around yet)


  1. With CentOS 6 everthing is handled by udev now. Go into /etc/udev/rules.d and delete the 70-persistent-net.rules file and reboot.
  2. Now you need to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and manually update to the MAC of your new NIC card.

Deleting the file forces the detection process to run again at boot with no baggage left over from the cloning process, namely the old NIC MAC address(es).
