My VM Host server is 08 R2 Ent.  It's running Hyper-V and has 2008 SCVMM installed.  I'm doing a P2V on two computers.  Computer 1 is a server 2008 Std DC.  When I start my P2V conversion, it begins to run and the HD begins to copy over and is running now.

When I try to do the P2v on computer 2, i get the HTTP/HTTPS BITS error.  The only diff is that computer two is not on the domain.  It's in a workgroup.  It's also server 2003 R2.

So, what am I missing?  I'm thinking if the 2008 will P2v then the HTTP, HTTPS and BITS must all be doing what they are supposed to be doing.  

I'm doing some googling and seeing a lot about ports and such, but again, I can do a P2V on the 2008 DC, just not the 2003 workgroup server.  Firewalls are off on both VM host and 2003 server that fails.

Here are the two errors the 2003 is throwing:

Error (2940)
VMM is unable to complete the requested file transfer. The connection to the HTTP server T310.XXXXXXdomain.local could not be established.
 (Unknown error (0x80072efd))

Recommended Action
Ensure that the HTTP service and/or the agent on the machine T310.xxxxxxdomain.local are installed and running and that a firewall is not blocking HTTPS traffic.
