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

If you can afford to take the guest machine offline while you migrate them, simply power off the guest, then move the files to the new machine and attach the guest to the new 3.5 host.

If you need the machine to remain online you can look into using <a href=”http://www.platespin.com/”>Platespin</a> which will to a V2V migration with basically 0 downtime.
