comment How can I copy a Virtual Machine on VMWare ESXi 4 while maintaining Thin Provisioning?
@Billy ONeal Really it isn't any faster? How big are your VMs? I can backup and re-deploy a copy of a 30GB vm in about 5 minutes (the particular OVF I'm working with now compresses down to about a gig). Additionally, this is script-able, so you don't have to sit around and wait for the converter.

Also, the ovftool can be used to deploy to VMware Server 2, which is really handy. Almost everything is the same, except the disk mode needs to be monolithicSparse to be the equivalent of thin.

@Billy ONeal, No, it works fine with the free version of ESXi. I just tested it to an ESXi box that is using the free license.

Wireshark will use the same backend as tcpdump to capture packets, so it won't provide different results (libpcap or winpcap, depending on the platform).
