I am trying to convert my physical linux red hat into my esxi box. i made sure the duplex was set on the my switch correctly.

when I try to perform an offline clone i receive a "warning: cannot configure source image" error but then it allows me to proceed..it stays cloning the first partition and gets stuck at 2%...i left it overnight and in the morning I picked it up at 6 %...the box is about 40 gb so it can't possibly be the size of it...

Can I perform an online clone? the import wizard ask for windows credentials plus i  am not even sure this is supported for linux..

Anyhow, please advise on what can be going on with my cold cloning proccess or if it would be possible to try an online clone.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

This operation stalls when there's a firewall between your Clone server and your physical server. It uses some ports than initially advised on the site. When I had this problem I moved the VIClone server to the same segment and the problem was gone.

Cheers,
K.

the linux and esx host are on the same segment...do you think anything on the linux box itself could be causing this?

please help soonest

This is what I've suggested: You were not attached to the segment you're attached your host.
