After taking my backup server in use I want to be able to move vm’s around and create copies. Think about a full pfSense backup for instance.
After trying a few options, such as manually exporting OVF templates, copying using VEEAM Backup and migrating VMware vCenter Converter Standalone. After using all three, I have found that VMware vCenter Converter works best for my needs.
It is free to download from here. Can be used to convert ESXi, VMware workstation and HyperV Virtual machines from and to all of them. Instead of converting I use it to copy from ESXi to ESXi.
