Many arrays have snapshot functionality built in, so you could take an array-based snap of the datastore, present the snapshot to a standalone VM host and copy from the Snap all while the VM's are up and running. Individual SMB Enterprise.

Note also, that the host must be powered down for this to work so unless migrated, all hosted VMs will obviously stop working. Can I use the vm convertor fron vm to vm image?

The console would probably be the fastest. Log In.
