I used VBRfree9.5 to copy the vmdk + vmdk descriptor files form an old host to a new host. On the old host they were vRDM. On the new host they should be VMDK.
This is NOT an Operating System bootable drive. Purely file storage. No lingering manual Snapshots ever anywhere!
VBRfree9.5 copied the 2.7TB of old vRDM vmdk pointer beautifully mercifully fast! (the resultant = proper sized 1.8 TB and 1 TB vmdk's and vmdk descriptor files)
But I cannot attach the resultant files to any vm because the descriptor vmdk is 'not right'. and (FWIW) the data vmdk doesn't end in the usual "-flat.vmdk" either
Yes I found this: ( https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1002511 ) but I only have 4 TB of storage
Can someone help me crack this nut?
Do I need to start all over and spend a whole week with vmware converter?
