Using your computer for testing purposes has its risks. You can permanently damage your operating system and lose precious data. Luckily, applications like VMware Converter Standalone are designed to help you easily create virtual machines based on a source system machine, which is useful especially for software testers.

Several conversions options available

Either you want to create a new virtual machine or just reconfigure an already existing one, you are assisted by a wizard, which guides you through all the necessary steps of the process. Thus, using the software is easy even for a beginner.

When creating a new virtual machine, you have to choose the source system that you want to convert. This can be a local computer or a remote PC, an OVF or OVA virtual appliance or a third-party backup image. The program also supports another virtual machine as input, including Microsoft Virtual PCs. Depending on what you choose, the setup process is different.

After selecting the disks that VMware Converter Standalone duplicates when generating the virtual environment, you have to choose the destination type. The two available options are a standalone virtual machine or an infrastructure virtual machine, which is stored on a ESX server. Also, you can choose the name, type and location of your new virtual machine.

Lets you review and modify settings before getting started

Moreover, you can configure the disk allocation and the network access options. Thus, you can let the virtual machine have the same connection preferences and IP address as the host machine. In addition to this, VMware Converter Standalone allows you to customize the guest operating system and the virtual computer's detailed information.

When these steps are complete, you can view a summary of all the virtual machines' settings, thus enabling you to easily review and change undesired items.

The new task appears in the main window of VMware Converter Standalone. While the application configures the parameters for the target virtual machine, you can permanently view its status and progress. Furthermore, you can run multiple conversions simultaneously.

In conclusion

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that, VMware Converter Standalone can help you generate a virtual machine easily and quickly, with minimal effort from your part. It greatly comes in handy when your work implies applications testing, so that you don't mess up your computer's system.

What's New in This Release:
  • A critical security vulnerability in the Bash shell, also referred to as Shellshock, has been identified. Exploitation of this issue might lead to remote code execution.
  • During Linux P2V conversions, Converter Standalone is running a Helper VM at the destination location. The Helper VM of vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5.2 might use the Bash shell which is part of the Linux operating system. In case the operating system has a vulnerable version of Bash, the Bash security vulnerability might be exploited through the helper VM.
  • The vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5.3 release fixes the Bash shell vulnerability.
