You must consider the compatibilities and the interoperabilities among the systems on which and with which the Converter Standalone components work. Supported Operating SystemsYou can install Converter Standalone components only on Windows operating systems. Converter Standalone supports Windows and Linux operating systems as sources for powered-on-machine conversions and virtual-machine conversions. You cannot reconfigure Linux distributions. Supported Firmware InterfacesWith Converter Standalone you can perform conversions from BIOS and UEFI sources. Supported Source TypesWith Converter Standalone, you can convert remote powered on machines, powered off VMware virtual machines and Hyper-V Server virtual machines. Supported Destination TypesWith Converter Standalone, you can create virtual machines compatible with VMware hosted and managed products. Supported Source Disk TypesConverter Standalone supports conversions from master boot record (MBR) and GUID partition table (GPT) disks with some limitations that depend on the selected data cloning mode. Supported Destination Disk TypesSeveral destination disk types might be available for the selected destination. Support for IPv6 in Converter StandaloneConverter Standalone supports both IPv4 and IPv6 Internet protocols with several limitations. Screen Resolution RequirementsTo display wizards properly, Converter Standalone requires a screen resolution of at least 1024x768 pixels. Configuring Permissions for vCenter Server UsersTo convert virtual machines to vCenter Server machines with Converter Standalone, you must have certain vCenter Server permissions set at the data center level. TCP/IP and UDP Port Requirements for ConversionTo enable conversion, the Converter Standalone server and client must be able to send data to each other, to remote machines, and to vCenter Server. Also, the source and destination hosts must receive data from each other. Designated ports are reserved for this communication. Requirements for Remote Hot Cloning of Windows Operating SystemsTo avoid problems related to permissions and network access, ensure that simple file sharing is turned off and that Windows Firewall does not block file and printer sharing. Also, to access file and printer sharing ports, you might need to change the scope of the IP addresses that the firewall allows.
