CentOS V2V | Hyper-V to VMware - The easy way

I had a task to export a Hyper-V, CentOS 6 VM and deploy it to a vSphere cluster. Due to the nature of the VM we had to preserve it because the VM was already set up and it was too long for us to build a new one with the same settings.

Before start I would like to point out that if this is a Linux VM you are doing, then because there will be a complete hardware change you may end up with unbootable clone, which can be fixed. This did not happen to me though, but in the end of this article I will also point those things out as potential issues.
