converter 5.0 will crash when vcenter is upgraded to 5.1. Does anybody know any temp work around or fix? thanks
It's showing back up in the listings as 5.0.1 with a 10/25 release date, but the link goes to the download page that only shows 5.0.0 so I guess it still hasn't propagated across the download system? Or will it pull the same disappearing act again?
Edit - and literally 10 minutes later the download link goes live!
Downloaded successfully too, so get it while you can.
I have downloaded the new converter, installed it and used it to move a VMimage that I created last week on my Workstation 9.0 to a 5.1 server. The image converted without difficulty.
Note mbramwel did a v2v. Anyone done a p2v yet? I had been waiting on the 5.0.1 converter before commiting to installing ESXi 5.1 so I can't test at the moment.
Also note that new and upgraded installs of Converter 5.0.1 seems to reset the NFC SSL flag to TRUE near the bottom of the converter-worker.xml settings file, so if you want decent converter performace you will need to edit the file again back to FALSE and restart the services.
It is also working well for me today. I started our ~20 server migration from Hyper-V to VMware ESXi 5.1 today and wow does it save a heck of a lot of time and steps compared to doing it with Converter 4.3...
Thank you for <finally> releasing this... it honestly came to a point that if it wasn't released I was going to be screwed...
I will be converting servers all weekend now
