Please document how to use the converter-helper-vm.iso manually

It is a pity that P2V of Linux only works with managed destinations.

The reason for this is the fully automated use of the helper boot-CD.

Can we have a documentation how to use this CD manually ?

This would allow us to P2V Linux-systems to destination other then ESX

thanks Ulli

I, for one, greatly second this idea. Info on this is rather scarce, kind of hanging in the cloud air.

Did anyone hear this, Ulli?

Is there any documentation availble?

Honestly I do not really expect that VMware will really listen to this request Smiley Sad

The Converter product managers seem to regard ESX as the only useful target for a P2V.

IMHO this is unwise - as often using a temporary target running on Workstation is useful ...
