Trouble understanding vmware Converter "destination"
Posted on 2010-09-18
Trying to use Vmware vCenter Converter Standalone to do P2V of a my network XP machine.
1) II choose "powered on machine and give it the IP and admin credentials, no problem and seems to deploy the agent no problem QUESTION
SELECT DESTINATION TYPE: I THINK I AM choosing the correct option "Vmware Infrastructure virtual machine" because I am running a successful version of VMware Infrastructure WebAccess with a previously converted Physical machine.
BUT IN THE DESTINATION SERVER there is nothing in the drop down box and if I enter the IP of this box it immediately says "unable to recognize the server type or version when connecting to the host
"192.168.10.130" I have tried the FQDN of this box and variations But it seems to need some Host name fo my VMware Infrastucture Web Access program that I am unaware of.
