VMWare Converter 4 doesn't allow conversion to VMWare Server Destination
Posted on 2009-03-31
I am attempting to convert a physical linux machine to a VMWare Server 2.0 virtual machine. I installed the linux VMware Converter client and server on the linux box, and I'm running the Converter 4.0 app from a Windows box. It connects to the linux box just fine, correctly identifies the OS/etc., but when I get to the destination part of the Converter wizard, it only gives me a "destination" choice of VMWare ESX (which I don't have).
Any ideas why the converter doesn't offer to convert it to a VMWare server (flat file) destination?
