FAILED: Unable to reconfigure the destination virtual machine

When you convert a physical Windows Server 2003 machine, to reach 95% an error of reconfiguration failed. We tried to stop SQL services, but the problem persists. When you install VMware Converter on the physical machine, to reach 98% showing a failed reconfigurción error.
We tried to format the disk arrays, with 8MB and the same problem happens.
Anyone have an idea how to fix?
Sorry for my English.
Thanks everyone!

I was able to virtualize the C\: drive operating system, but it is impossible to virtualize the data in the drive E:\. On the drive e: contains the SQL databases. Is there a problem to virtualize SQL databases with vmware?

Hi

To P2V databases you need to stop the services. And be careful with the data if you are migrating with a hot migration.

Did you try a cold migration? For databases the best is a cold migration.

Migraré data and database E: \ by hand. There should be no problem.
Thank you very much for your time.
