  • 1.  Converter Sync schedule?

    Posted Jun 12, 2013 12:36 PM

    Going over the advance options for syncronization i do not see any option for creating scheduled syncronizations?  Any ideas around how to accomplish this or are the syncronizations meant to be performed directly after an initila seed?  Should we not look to use this feature for continual syncs say days before a planned cut-over?   Also is there an enterprise version of the converter avilable for 5.0?

    There is scheduled synchronization in Converter since 5.0. Here is a snapshot from 5.1:

    You should be aware that scheduled synchronization is available for Windows P2V to managed destinations only. Other restrictions apply to using synchronization (see p.71)

    You can schedule only one synchronization, though, no recurring scheduling.

    Converter as a vCenter Server plugin has been discontinued since 4.1 (if that is what you mean by enterprise version).
