    Hi guys,

    I have a physical server which running on Windows Server 2003 R2.

    I plan to P2V it by suing vCenter Converter Standalone to an ESXi host 6.0 free version.

    My question here is:

    Is there any limitation since the target host is using ESXi free edition?

    Thank you

    You shouldn't have any issues. vCenter Converter 6 still support Windows Server 2003.

    There are limitation in such tools like Veeam with it's Quick Migration and replication features, because it uses VMware APis that are not available in free edition of the hypervisor. But VMware Converter doesn't have such limitations.
