  • 1.  Standalone vConverter failes at 95%

    Posted Dec 18, 2009 03:58 AM

    I have tried this twice now, once with resizing the disks and once without. Each time it fails at 95% right after it clones the drives. The system is a Windows 2003 R2, and the vitual host has plenty of space for it.

    I am attaching the logs here, if someone can see what the issue might be? I can't see anything that would cause the error, and the only information is that it is a system error encountered during an operation.

    The only error I am seeing which I don't quite understand is Error 144 mounting the destination volume.

    Thank you for any assistance

    Steve

    Hello Steve,

    What kind of storage is in the target machine IDE or SCSI? Check the storage settings in the vcenter to see to what is it getting loaded to? Also check this thread below to see if its helpful.

    Also please check the NIC duplex settings.

    The storage is scsi to scsi. The Target NIC Settings are set for 1000 full, and at the source they are set for Auto (showing that they are set for 1000/full) - I have reset the NIC's and am trying again.

    If it works I will let you know.

    Thank you,

    Steve

    When I tried a fresh install, and it didn't work 100%, but in changing the NIC settings to 1K full, it worked fine. Thank you to you both.

    I would reinstall the Converter, then try the V2P operation again.
