    Hi Marc,

    We can move the VM using vCenter converter. 1st you need to download guest vcenter folder from esx server. then using vcenter converter we can migrate to another esx server.
    then power on your vcenter guest vm and login to vcenter using vsphere client and migrate the all vms which is in decomissioned esx server and remove from vcenter and decommission the esx server.

    Please try this one. It will work I think.

  4. Unable to connect to the MKS: Timeout while attempting read

    I get this when I try to connect to my home vmware server. I was able to connect and work on my VMs when I shutdown my firewalls. I found out how to open the proper ports on my firewalls so I would not have to shut them down. I get the above error now. I have searched around and found no good answer. I don’t have a specialized server system, just my monster at home that could be a server.

    Any ideas on what I can do. to fix the error.

    Things I can do: On the left pain where my servers are listed I can turn my shared VMs on and off with a right click of the mouse.

    When i turn on a machine things look good until about 90% loaded. then the error “Unable to connect to the MKS: Timeout while attempting read” pops up.

    I can look at the machines at home and I have turned them on and they are working properly. I just cannot interact with them in the view window. I have a black screen.
