Hello all,

I have a Windows 2008 SP1 VM running in VMWare Server 2.0.1 with VMWare Tools build-44356. At the time the 2008 server vm was built, this version of VMware didn't have a server 2008 template, so used the 2003 one. All has been working perfectly. We, however, are planning to shut the host down so we either need to convert or rebuild.

So...with all that...1st: Should I even attempt to convert it? Would I be better off doing a new build on our Hyper-V 2008 R2 server? This isn't a mission critical server, so a rebuild would be more of an inconvenience than anything. 2nd: If converting would be ok, would I need to remove the tools before converting this VM?

Thank you for any input on our project.
