I try to migrate virtual machine with Centos from VMWARE exsi 5.0 to another vmware exsi 5.0 but have error after retring info machine: Reconfiguration is not supported for the selected source.

I check logs but not found problems.

Very stranger, server is on same network, is new servers, same version of vmware esxi 5.0, and converter is 5.0 too, but I already try with converter 4.x not sucessfull.

Thanks

Did you let the conversion process finish, this usually means, it cannot detect the source image for conversion, to add VMware Tools, Remove System Checkpoints, which are Windows related?

You could use Veeam FastSCP to copy the VM, from one ESXi 5.0 server to the other ESXi 5.0.

It works perfect here.

You must enable SSH on your ESXi 5.0 servers.

Select Host, Configuration, Security Profile, and start SSH

Have you tried the normal datastore browser included in the vSphere Client?

hanccocka: Pls try witout reconfiguration option but before you power on the machine its has to be recofigured alone with the same tool verion ,if does not work try with some older verion .

With out reconfiguration when you power on the vm you will get the blue screen if the vm is windows and ensure reconfiguration and also vm tool instaltion need to be done later once the migration complete and hope this will work.
