VMWare Converter Standalone Error to Convert
Posted on 2010-08-24
My vCenter server is running on a Virtual Machine on one of my hosts. My goal is to resize its disk because I would like to activate the Fault Tolerance for that VM. The VM has 100GB using thin disks and I would like to resize it to 25GB because with the Fault Tolerance enabled I know it will convert it to thick and I dont want to use that amount if I just need like 10GB for the VMWare VM.
The way I found to do this was using VMWare Converter Standalone to resize the disk. The problem is I tried dozen times to convert that VM and the software always fails. I have realized that every time it fails I lose access to the vSphere client connected to the ESXi destination I am sending the VM to (I was connected with vSphere to the server destination while running the Standalone converting the VM).
Anybody have any ideas ? I have the logs with me but I dont know which one to post. If its useful for you, let me know which one and I will attach it here.
Thank you very much.
