Hi Andrew, I have the standalone downloaded but where would i deploy it to exactly? I was just going to install it to the laptop because i can access the current VMs but i see the guide talks about specifying the datastore so im not sure if i can do this from my laptop?

Both running now mate. On the bit about changing the size of the VM, does this mean that If i want to extended teh system partition of a server then this is where I can do it ?

Yes, it's best and recommended to install "Converter" in the VM to be converted, and you can then adjust size if you require.
