Disable SSL VM Standalone Converter

29 Jan

To disable SSL encryption for the converter worker:

  1. Take a backup of the converter-worker.xml file. By default, this file is located at:
    • Windows 7/Server 2008 and Later – C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
    • Windows Vista, XP and 2003 Server – %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
    • In older Windows versions – %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
  2. Open the converter-worker.xml file using a text editor.
  3. Locate the tag pair <useSsl></useSsl>. It is located inside the <nfc> tag and has a value of true.
  4. Change the value to false.
  5. Save and close the file.
  6. Restart the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Worker service on the machine.
