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.

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.
