I'm doing a P2V for Hyper-V 2012 R2 for the first time. I've got a Windows Server 2008 R2 physical machine that I need to put on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V host. I used the Windows Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter 3 to do it and everything went well according the converter program. I went to power the machine up on the Hyper-V host and I got the following error message
An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machines
"machine name" could not initialize
"machine name" could not create or access saved state file.....followed by a long .vsv file name.
I'm attaching the error message.
I'm new to the P2V process for Hyper-V. It looks like the problem is the vsv file mentioned is missing completely. The bin file is also missing. Any ideas on how to solve this problem
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks very much.
