MVMC Error ScreenshotI have Hyper-V (Windows 2012 R2 Server) and I am trying to use Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) to convert a physical Windows 2012 R2 server into a virtual machine in Hyper-V.

Specify localhost as source if you are running version 3.1 of MVMC on the same machine you are converting to a dedicated hyper-v host; otherwise try to open the SSL Certificate and add it to trusted root certificate  authority. on the server that is taking the conversion

"Specify localhost as source if you are running version 3.1 of MVMC on the same machine you are converting to a dedicated hyper-v host;"  ---> I don't understand this. Let me list what I entered into MVMC:
1. Select a machine type: Physical machine conversion
2.  Physical machine  Address: W2012R2.domain.local
3. Username: domain\domain_admin_username
4. Scan System showed: OS version W2012R2
5. Under Volume Configuration, System Reseeved and (C:) selected.
6. Virtual Machine Name: W2012R2VM   # of CPU: 1  RAM: 4GB
7.  Select Hyper-V host as the destination: Address: 192.168.1.169  Username: administrator
8. Specify a path to store the converted virtual HD: \\192.168.1.169\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks
9. Select a location on this machine(W2012R2) with enough free space for the converted virtual HD: E:\VHD (External USB)
10. Specify which virtual switches: Intel Ethernet Controller xxx
11. Summary: Source - W2012R2.domain.local  Virtual Machine: W2012R2VM  Destination: 192.168.1.169   Destination VHD path: \\192.168.1.169\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks

"otherwise try to open the SSL Certificate and add it to trusted root certificate  authority. on the server that is taking the conversion" --> Can you be more specific?

you tried an IP address, rather than a hostname ?
