Automate VMware Converter 5 For Backups Or Disaster Recovery

VMWare Converter

Perhaps a daft move, but VMware Converter (sometimes called P2V or¬†vCenter Converter) no longer allows you to script the creation of a machine image by way of the command line. This used to be possible in earlier versions of Converter, but was unceremoniously removed from version 5.0 and up. This has many confused, who used the tool as something of a “poor man’s disaster recovery tool”. In this article I’m going to go over a means of ¬†automating Converter so you can again use it for a backup.

There are no more results.
