VMware Stand-Alone Converter

I remember with vSphere 4.x, when running the vConverter Plug-In fom the vSphere client, you had the option to do an estimated conversion time.  I believe you could even schedule it.  Is that something that can still be done with vConverter stand-alone?  If so, I cannot figure out where it's located.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortuantely - NOT. It has been removed.

Standalone is the only product now, with no vCenter Server plugin or integration.

Right, thanks for the quick response!  So the standalone doesn't do estimated time?
Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE Fellow)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
Yes, it does Estimated Time....(it's quite accurate as well!), but only after you submit the job!

I guess what I mean is an estimated time without actually converting the device.  :)

No, that does not exist.
