VMware Converter does not start conversion
Posted on 2011-10-02
I am trying to convert a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition Domain Controller to VMware ESX 4.1 Update 1 using the Converter Standalone. All quite normal, 32bit, 2 CPUs, 4GB. Tobit Faxware is installed. Also Terminal Services and some workstation-stuff (I know - not recommended. It's only four users.)
It installs the agent fine, it start and finishes the snapshot successfully. After about 4 minutes and 1% into the conversion (the VM is not yet created in ESX) it stopps saying the conversion fails.
I'm a bit helpless and don't know where to look. Does anyone have an idea?
