I am sorry if this is too obvious for some of you, but it seems not obvious to most of my customers. Every few days I get the following question from my customers, which I will try to briefly answer in this post.
Where can I find vmware vCenter converter in VMware vCenter 4?
Unfortunately, unlike most other VMware feature the VMware vCenter Converter does not have any obvious shortcut in vCenter. To start vCenter converter in Virtual Center you will need to follow the below steps:
- Make sure you are in host & clusters view.
- Choose one of your hosts or clusters in vCenter
- From the top drop down menu choose one of the following paths depend on if you have chosen a host or cluster in step 2.
Inventory ==> Host ==> Import Machine
Inventory ==> Cluster ==> Import Machine
The image below demonstrate the above steps:
I hope this help few VMware admins out there, & sorry if it was too easy for many of the other gurus out there. I believe most the usage steps of VMware vcenter converter is quite obvious & very well documented on the web. Please leave a comment if this help, or if you require any further help.
