VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 6.2 Release

VMware has released Converter Standalone 6.2, this has support for vSphere 6.5 Update 1 and Windows Server 2016.

What's new:

  • Interoperability with vSphere 6.5 Update 1
  • Support for additional guest operating systems: Windows Server 2016, Ubuntu 16.
  • Converter Standalone 6.2 adds a new configuration option in converter-worker.xml for Linux migrations. You can provide a path for the temporary files of vmware-sysinfo to be extracted and executed. If the Linux policy does not allow running code from /tmp directory from a privileged user, you can uncomment and add proper directory in the tag in converter-worker.xml, and then restart the worker service.
    • Note: This affects all future Linux conversions until the value is restored and the service is restarted again.
  • With Converter Standalone 6.2 you can change the default destination provisioning disk type from thick to thin. You must open the converter-worker.xml file, change the value of the tag to 'true', and restart the worker service.
    • Note: This affects all future conversions until the value is restored to 'false' and the service is restarted again.
