How to Speed Up VMware Converter 6.2

1. Taking forever to P2V or V2V a server? Disable SSL on VMware converter.

2. Edit "converter-worker.xml" with your favorite editor. Your going to have to save it as another file name because if you attempt to edit the actual file. It will bark "Access Denied" errors.

PATH: c:\programdata\vmware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone

3. Open the "converter-worker" XML file and edit the section called:

<useSsl>true</useSsl> and change it to <useSsl>false</useSsl>

4. Save the file as converter-worker-bak.xml.

5. Delete the original converter-worker.xml file and then remove the -bak from the one you created.

6. Re-launch VMware Converter and go after that migration!
