Hi,

Can someone please assist me in getting the attached error to work. It does provide me with the path to upload the sysprep file to.
I'm trying to convert a machine to another data store on the fly with synchronization, but need sysprep to work. - Win2008 64bit server

It depends on what tool you're using; if you're using vCenter Server, see this KB:
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1005593

You need to place the sysprep files on the vCenter Server. If you're using vCenter Converter Standalone tool, you'll need to place the sysprep files on your local machine.

Hi Coolsport

The machine I'm trying to convert is Win2008 64bit R2 and sysprep should be builtin??..Still getting the error though...

There have been issues with 2008 R2 and conversion.  I believe the new converter in ESX 4.1 (version 4.2 converter) supports Windows 7 and thus may support 2008 R2

Hi

I think vConverter is not supporting Win 2008 R2, only Win 7

Try this http://communities.vmware.com/thread/249166?start=30&tstart=0
