Problems running VMWare Converter to perform V2V 'An error occurred while opening a virtual disk.'
Posted on 2014-11-26
I'm trying to use VMWare Converter Standalone to perform a V2V migration from one DC to another.
Plan is to perform the initial sync, and then sync changes at the point of cut over.
As a test, I am trying to replicate one server.
I receive the following error; An error occurred while opening a virtual disk. Verify that the Converter server and the running source machines have a network access to the source and destination ESX/ESXi hosts.
I have turned SSL off changed to 'false' in the Worker.xml and restarted the VMWare Converter Worker service, I receive the same error.
The source and target are crossing multiple firewalls, however there is no NAT and I can test connectivity to the target from source server by telnetting on 443 and 902 in order to confirm the ports are open.
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated!
