    VMware vCenter Converter Standalone is a scalable solution to convert virtual and physical machines to VMware virtual machines. You can also configure existing virtual machines in your vCenter Server environment. Converter Standalone 4.3 eases the exchange of virtual machines among the following products.

  • Page 10: Migration With Converter Standalone, Converter Standalone Components

    Migration with Converter Standalone involves converting physical machines, virtual machines, and system images for use in VMware hosted and managed products. You can convert virtual machines that vCenter Server manages for use in other VMware products. You can use Converter Standalone to perform a number of conversion tasks.

  • Page 11: Cloning And System Configuration Of Physical Machines

    Hot and Cold Cloning of Physical Machines Although Converter Standalone 4.3 supports only hot cloning, you can still perform cold cloning by using the VMware Converter 4.1.x Boot CD. Depending on your virtual environment, you can choose to use hot or cold cloning.

  • Page 12

    VMware vCenter Converter Standalone User's Guide Cold cloning, also called offline cloning, entails cloning the source machine when it is not running its operating system. When you cold clone a machine, you reboot the source machine using a CD that has its own operating system and the vCenter Converter application on it.
