VMware standalone converter, hyper-v, errors

I'm using the stand alone converter from VMware to converts some VMs on a hyper-v server.

on the hyper-v server all VMs are healthy and running fine.  So, I powered them off for the conversion.

So far, I have successfully converted two, but the third is erroring out at 1%.  The error is that "the operation experienced a network error" although network connectivity is good.  As I said, I can convert the other VMs on the host, it's just this one giving me grief.  So, logged into the hyper-v server, started the VM to make sure it's solid, and it is.

Still, back over in the stand alone converter, I error out at 1%.

Ideas?

Thanks

Cliff

I would recommend, installing VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1 on the VM to be converted, this is Best Practice as recommended by VMware.

please see my EE Article, Step by Step Tutorial Instructions with Screenshots

Wait…I thought I read that you needed to shit down the VM on Hyper-V in order to move it to VMware.

If I understand you correctly, you are saying fire up the VM on Hyper-V, install the converter and push it over to the new ESXi host?

Good to see you answering Hanccoka…I haven't seen you in a while.

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.
