First upgrade converter to VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5, and if you have not installed VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5 on the computer to be converted, install it on the computer, and re-run the conversion. You may also want to review the articles for Best Practice.

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

did you install VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5 on the computer to be converted?

Did you change any of the configuration, on the Converter Job, or just accept defaults?

At what percentage does it fail ?

are you trying to clone two drives?

Hi,
I installed it vmconverter locally on the server that is to be converted.
I used all the default parameters except for the number of vcpu that on the physical server are 8 cores that are not supported on my esx host and so I configured only 1 core, the rest of the parameters are the default ones.
It crashes in the first phase of the conversion of the volume, I'm trying to convert only the C drive.
Thanks.

Can you leave all the default parameters again...(you can adjust the VM once it's created before power-up).

at what percentage, this is important, and does it fail at same point each time?

are you converting to ESXi directly or via vCenter Server?
