vCenter Converter 4.0 Sysprep warning

Filed under: vmware — wuhai @ 6:32 pm

When trying to convert Windows2k3 Standard server using VMware vCenter Converter, I got following warning message:

Warning: Unable to locate the required Sysprep files. Please upload them under ‘c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\sysprep\svr2003’ on the Converter server machine.

Go to CD1, Win2003-R2-i386std-cd1\SUPPORT\TOOLS, copy and extract DEPLOY.CAB to the above mentioned folder, then restart vCenter Converter session, the warning will go away ..
