vmware converter 3.0.3

Hi Guys

First off

Happy new year to you all.

Wondering if anyone has an idea of where I can download VMware converter 3.0.3?

I am trying to convert a physical server running windows 2000 to a virtual server and getting an error message

"Unable to complete vCenter agent installation on %server%. Error code 1,603"

After looking around the Internet and the community I have seen people mention that I need to use 3.0.3. The issue is though I cant find it to download. I have went to VMware site but they only seem to go back as far as 4.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as always

Austin.

This recent thread discusses the reality of this version. There is no official download link, as the version has been retired.

hi vmroyale

Thanks for the link! Searched everywhere but couldn't find an answer.

Colleague had mentioned a product called PlateSpin so going to look into that.

Thanks again.

Here's a better download source -- no Brothersoft crap wrapper around the original file...

Just downloaded it and used it to convert an old NT box earlier today.
