As I've bought a server it had a RAID controlleer which was not supported by VMWare ESXi 5, so I had to install it in a bare non-RAID configuration. Now as I've bought a supported RAID controller I am going to install it and, reconfigure all the attached HDDs as a new RAID 1+0 array and reinstall VMWare ESXi 5. I would need to restore all the VMs then. To do this I'd like to save all the VMs onto an USB-attached (to the server or to my gigabit-connected laptop - whatever is easier). How can I achieve this? How to export a VM image to a file?
PS: VMWare ESXi Server and vSphere Client are both 5.0.0, the license is trial (which, as far as I understand, is supposed to provide full set of features including guest migration).
