Virtualizing Windows 2003 to VCenter

  • 1.  Virtualizing Windows 2003 to VCenter

    Posted Sep 27, 2011 10:46 AM

    I'm trying to virtualize Windows 2003 server on VCenter (Windows 2008) with the help of vmware vcenter converter 5.0.0 build 470252.

    Converter is started on the source machine and after configuring the destination and other steps the process failed with error:

    "A general system error occured: unknown internal error".

    At the end of diagnostic log I see. The connectivity between Source and Vcenter is OK.

    There are no worker's logs inside... Select failed task before export logs.
