VMware Converter 3.0 Licence Files
VMware Converter 3.0 is a software tool that allows you to convert physical machines, virtual machines, and disk images to VMware virtual machines. It also provides features such as hot cloning, cold cloning, synchronization, and configuration customization.
To use VMware Converter 3.0, you need to obtain a license file that matches your VMware product license. In this article, we will explain how to get and activate a VMware Converter 3.0 Enterprise license, which is required for cold cloning and synchronization.
Obtaining a VMware Converter 3.0 Enterprise License
Obtaining a license for VMware Converter Enterprise requires that you have an active and unexpired support-and-subscription (SnS) contract for either VMware VirtualCenter Management Server or VMware P2V Assistant.
If you have an active and unexpired SnS contract for either VMware VirtualCenter Management Server or VMware P2V Assistant, you should have received an email from VMware informing you about your eligibility for a VMware Converter Enterprise license (at no additional cost) and how to go about obtaining it.
Note: If you have not received any email communication from VMware regarding your VMware Converter Enterprise license, in spite of having an active and unexpired SnS contract for either VMware VirtualCenter Management Server or VMware P2V Assistant, please log in to the [VMware Product License portal] to confirm that your VMware Converter Enterprise licenses do not appear under My Product Licenses before contacting Customer Support.
If you do not have an active and unexpired SnS contract for either VMware VirtualCenter Management Server or VMware P2V Assistant, and would like to obtain a license for VMware Converter Enterprise, please contact [VMware Sales] to purchase a license for VMware VirtualCenter Management Server.

Using a VMware Converter 3.0 Enterprise License
To use your VMware Converter 3.0 Enterprise license, you need to install the [VMware vCenter Converter Standalone] software on your computer.
You also need to download the [VMware vCenter Converter BootCD] ZIP file, which contains the ISO image of the cold clone disc.
The cold clone disc allows you to boot a physical machine from a CD-ROM and perform a cold cloning operation without installing any software on the source machine.
The synchronization feature allows you to perform incremental conversions of physical or virtual machines to keep them up-to-date with the source machine.
To use the cold clone disc or the synchronization feature, you need to specify the path of your .lic file when prompted by the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone software.
