We have a new video tutorial available which might be of interest to anyone who uses our vCenter Converter Standalone product regularly.
By default, the converter worker in VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.0.x encrypts the data stream using SSL. Encrypting the traffic increases security, but it can degrade performance. If you are running multiple system conversions and you are finding the performance to be a little slow, the solution in this video might be your ticket.
This video discusses and demonstrates disabling the SSL encryption in VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.0.x.
For additional instructions, check out VMware Knowledge Base article Disabling SSL encryption on VMware Converter Standalone 5.0 (2020517).
