LLE10154 : How to get your virtual machine out of the ESX Server


You need to get an export from your VM on another system


Needed for Backup or Recovery


First of all, to export your virtual machine (VM), you need to shut it down. Alas it cannot be exported, when running...

Then select the  VM you want to export in the VMware Infrastructure Client and choose in the "File" Menu --> "Virtual Appliance" --> Export...

By the way right above "Export..." you'll find "Import..." - just in case you really need to get it back in ;-)

In the following File-Save Assistant, just choose your favourite folder and start the export.

It will make an export (VMX-File) of the whole size of your VM - so keep in mind to choose a volume with sufficiant space.
