SCVMM R2 error during P2V

Win2008R2 with SCVMMR2.
Trying P2V of server on same subnet as host. The physical server to be converted has 1 NIC. Creating the P2V task I tell host to connect to that 10.x IP address.

Error (3133) Virtual Machine Manager could not connect to source computer servername.domainname.com after it restarted into Windows PE (temporary computer name is p2v-ldjj). Automatic restart to the original operating system is scheduled to occur within 15 minutes. Recommended Action If servername.domainname.com does not restart in 15 minutes, manually restart it back into the original operating system using the boot menu.

MS have a hotfix but this only applies to non-R2 and will not install.

may be the GOD answered your prayers. Next time around before posting a question make repeated attempts and that will resolve any issue. And maybe you should mention in your question if you have already made repeated attempts or not.

sorry to give such a poor reason to close the question really.  
usually repeating something after changing nothing on a computer doesn't change the result......

hi petben,

not a problem, what i meant to say was if something starts working after repeated attempts, there might have been some underlying change that happened and we are not aware of it.

All said and done if the problem is resolved that is good enogh.

That is what EE is all about.
