sysprep stuff

note to self

Ran in to some hassle with finding appropriate syspreps with VMware vCenter Converter. Quite simple as it turned out to locate them, but i keep forgetting what to put and where.

Simply extract and copy all the contents of the appropriate package from this VMware KB article into the location that is displayed in the table. And remember, its not just the sysprep.exe it needs, but also the accompanying files as well.

Hope i won't run into anymore time-wasting situations by forgetting this. Another thing worth noting is, in case a conversion was done without the proper packages in place, you can always initiate a reconfigure of the that VM using the Converter after making sure necessary files are in place.
