  1. Th conversion VM only works if you’re not using the free version of VMWare. Their API is locked down. You’re stuck with importing and exporting.

  2. Um. Little confused, that link is for esxi 3.5 or 4.0. That is a little outdated if you are using ESXi 5.x. I was under the assumption that you needed a trial license for XenServer for this to work.
