Problem

While trying to convert a VM from one location to another (in my case, Workstation->ESXi or ESXi->ESXi) you get the error: The Session is not authenticated

Solution

Exit the standalone converter and open your services (Start>Run and then type in services.msc and press enter.)

Locate following services and stop them in this order:

  • VMWare vCenter Converter Server
  • VMWare vCenter Converter Agent
Now start the services in this order:
  • VMWare vCenter Converter Server
  • VMWare vCenter Converter Agent
Start the vCenter Converter again and start the convertion process.

WFM.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
