VMware converter dies: fatal error from loss of network connection?

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm erroring out on converting a physical machine with the vCenter Converter Standalone.  I can do it for other machines just fine, but I get the fatal error below while trying to setup the job.

The first couple prompts I progress right through, but it says "verifying destination parameters", then "preparing next step", then dies.  I do the same thing for other machines without incident.  The host appears fine, and accepts other machines.

See error below.  Thanks.
