I have a SV2i image for one of my servers. I tried to convert the image to a virtual machine using VMware Stand alone converter and I received the error : The Source parameters are invalid.

The virtual machine I am trying to convert is  Windows 7 32bit.

Attached is the log file.

This is because VMware vCenter Converter Standalone does not work with the latest implementations of the SV2i image.

What version is your image from?

Thanks doe your response .. I believe the image made from Symantec Norton V 14 or 15.
The VMware converter version is 5.1.0

Yes, Symantec have changed the image format slightly, but VMware have never updated the code, and was originally designed for the early versions of PowerQuest DriveImage, and version of Symantec products shortly after.

I believe earlier versions of Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery were also compatible, but not the latest versions.

Have you tried running "Run As Administrator" or disable UAC

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Yes I did run as Administrator but no change.

Is there any software will convert my current SV2i image to a VMware format ? I really need to access the image.

The version that's supported is with version 10 and lower.  If you're using the latest version it's not supported although you may be able to download System Recovery Server trial version (enterprise level version Ghost) which has a built in converter to convert to a VM..

Unfortunately no. Restore it to a PC, and then use VMware vCenter Converter Standalone to convert that PC to a VMware Machine.

You may be able to use a trial version of system recovery server to do the conversion
