    How do I change the location of VM's

    I have my VM's installed in the default directory. I would like to move them and install new ones on anew hard drive I've mounted on this folder:

    /media/500/vm/

    How do I copy or move the VM's here and how do I change the configuration to put new VM's there?

    Thanks

    In vmware console, select host - settings this allows you to specify where to store the vms.

    Then just copy your old vms into that folder.

    A simple cut and past into the new directory... Then browse to them in the vm software... I move mine all time for testing purposes...
