Exactly which command do you use to convert an ext3 file system to
vmfs? I am not vmfs expert, but I can forward it to vmfs guys.

Oh, wait. If I understand correctly, you convert it to vmfs, it is
not an ext3 file system any more. You should not try to mount it as
ext3 nor fsck it as ext3. That will only result in corruption in vmfs.

Vmfs is completely different file system.
