  • 1.  Restore Virtual Machine

    Posted Jan 27, 2023 09:16 AM


    I plan to use VMware vCenter Converter Standalone (v.6.2.0 or later) for converting a physical machine to a virtual one; this operation will produce a file representing the image of my physical workstation, which can then be opened with VMware Workstation Player module (v.16 or later); so my question is:

    one the virtual machine will be created, can I restore it (in the foreseeable future) through different versions or vmware software solutions?

    Thanks in advance

    Converter Standalone will ask you which VMware product and version you wish to run the VM on - there is some portability, and the products have export/import options which leverage the OVF format too.

    Hi Scott28tt,

    Thank you for your prompt reply and assistance, is OVF format available for VMware vCenter Converter Standalone v.6.2.0 or later?
