Permissions denied when running vmware standalone converter

I am trying to run Vmware standalone converter to p2v a server 2008 physical server. The servers are domain joined. I have verified the user I am attempting to run converter as is a member of local admins on the server performing the conversion, and the server being converted. I have disabled UAC. I right->click vmware converter -> run as administrator. I start a new conversion of a remote machine -> enter local admin credentials -> the agent installs on remote machine -> when I click next I get the error "Permission to perform this operation was denied". I have also tried with domain admin credentials. I have also tried running the converter from a workgroup computer.

Any ideas?

It does work when running locally, I had tested in advance. I was trying to perform the P2V's for multiple servers from one central location. But, I will instead run them locally. Thanks for the help.
