VCS til VCSA Converter update

VMware has made a new version of the fling used for migration/convertion of Windows based vCenter Server to vCenter Server Appliance.

This new version has the following improvements:

  • Add support for Windows Server 2012R2 VC servers
  • Allow specifying a different port for the SQL Server

It can be found here: https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vcs-to-vcva-converter

Note 1:

Only works on vCenter 5.5.

Note 2 (From the documentation):

Note for Windows Server 2012 R2 users:

Version 0.9.1 of the Converter Appliance now supports VC running on Windows Server 2012 R2, using WinRM to connect to Windows Server. Unfortunately, we do not support secure WinRM connections; ensure that you have a trusted network between the Converter Appliance and VC. To configure your source VC for WinRM connections, run these commands at a command prompt as an Administrator:

winrm quickconfig
winrm set winrm/config/service/auth @{Basic="true"}
winrm set winrm/config/service @{AllowUnencrypted="true"}

Finally, make sure that TCP port 5985 on your VC server is open to the Converter Appliance.
