Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Unfortunately none of the P2V tools (Platespin Powerconvert, Vizioncore vConverter, Vmware Converter) support P2V conversions of Solaris systems, only Windows and Linux. Additionally Solaris 8 is not supported on ESX, only 9 & 10. You might be able to still install it on ESX even though it is not supported though. Check out the <a href=”http://vmware.com/pdf/GuestOS_guide.pdf”>VMware Guest OS guide</a> for more information including general installation notes.
