Howto: migrate a VMware Workstation VM to a vSphere 4.1 VM ?

I prepared a Windows 2008 R2 DC VM on my Win7 & VMware workstation 7.1.4 pc.
Then I wanted to transform it to a VMware vSphere 4.1 VM.

The easiest way to do this, is to use the VMware Converter.
Afterwards I still have to change the following:
– VM properties: change guest os: Windows 7 -> Windows 2008 R2
– uninstall VMware Tools and reinstall VMware Tools
