I am trying to do a p2v from a server that has the standalone convertor on it to another server but when it tries to install the standalone agents, I keep getting the 1603 error unable to complete the converter agent installation..
Now my problem is that I cant rdp to the server and do a manual install because rdp must not be enabled because I cant get to it..
Any odeas?

Look like the converter is not able to access the network share on the source which fails the agent installation.

If you have access to the hardware console (ILO, or DRAC) then try to copy the agent and install it locally.

Pls also make sure the required ports are opened from the source to destination for the successful conversion

Does the remote server have the Windows firewall or UAC enabled? Are you able to connect to the remote server using Computer Management?
