Import Virtualbox VM to VMware vSphere

  1. Upload the Virtualbox vm’s vmdk file to vmware datastore.
  2. ssh to vmware vSphere/ ESXi and convert the uploaded disk. The snapshots will not work if the file is not converted.
    command : vmkfstools -i <source>.vmdk <target>.vmdk -d thin
  3. Create a new VM in with vSphere client and attach the converted disk to it
