When you set up a conversion job, you must select a destination for the new virtual machine.

When you use a VMware DRS cluster as the destination, you must set VMware DRS Power Management (DPM) to manual. This setting ensures that DPM does not power off the ESXi hosts that Converter Standalone uses. When the conversion process completes, restore DPM to its original settings. For information about how to change DPM settings, see vSphere Resource Management.

Note: For conversions of powered on source machines that run Linux, the only supported destination is a vSphere destination.
