VMware Converter and Citrix Edgesight are not friends

Are your trying to run VMware converter on a Citrix server and getting a heaping helping of #FAIL?  VMware converter and the Edgesight agent do not play nice for a "Live" converstion.  The converter software crashes consistently when you are doing discovery against your VM candidate.  The easiest fix is to stop the "Citrix System Monitoring" services and the "Firebird" service prior to installing the converter software.  Once you have your copy, you can restart Edgesight without any issue.
