Hi,

We have P2V a workstation (WXP) that runs an old application that is still in production. Everything seems to work fine but sometimes we get the following error message and the application stops working.

When the app was running on physical we didn't get this error message and we didn't experience the problem.

Does someone knows anything about this error message? Or could bring some light to the problem?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( DataD ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event:

PID = 2636

closesocket() failed.

I think I would run Process Monitor on the WIndows XP Workstation, download from here

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645

and work out what Process ID 2636 is?

does this happen alot with different PIDs?

Is this a commercial application? If so what is it?

hanccocka - It happens with different PIDs

bgoering -It is not a commercial application

This error is related to a customized service that runs this particular application. The service allows MAC clients to connect to the application from a client that is installed on the MAC workstations.

The system works fine in a physical computer and no errors are reported but it does not seem to work fine on a VM.

Can you test install "this application" on a XP VM, and check it works, in a VM.

It doesn't use licesning based on the MAC address of the PC?

It verfies if the P2V has failed or if the Application doesn't like working in a VM!

not all P2Vs work!

I see your point at list it will clear out a possible problem during the P2V process.
