Migration from VMWare to Hyper-V

Hi,

I encouter the following error as a last step in the conversion process. The full error is:

"Asynchronous job failed with error code 32769 and description: The operation failed. User 'DOMAIN\ADMINUSER' failed to create external configuration store at 'D:\VM\': General access denied error (Virtual machine ID 0x80070005)'"

This error occurs at the final stage of the process, when the MVMC is trying to place the VM in de appropriate folder. In Hyper-V, the settings of the VHD and VM files are set to D:\VHD and D:\VM. NTFS and share permissions are ok, the account which is used for the conversion has full access on both locations. The VHD file is placed in the right folder.

If it's necessary, I will place the log file on the forum as wel.

I hope that someone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

check permissions, is usually a permissions issue.

Full Control on the folder.

Can you check the permissions on the folder, it's being written to, and it has Full Control.

If you use this account, to create a VM using Hyper-V Manager does it succeed or fail ?

Is the Account a Domain Administrator ?

yes I can create a Virtual machine using the Hyper-V Manager in that same folder, when the migrating tool is in the final stage the error msg appears, and yes is a domain admin account.

The folder permission had to have the special permission changed manually to the IT Staff group, weird, that did it, however now it wont boot, after the conversion i believe i had to remove the vmware software from windows before the conversion, im i right?

I solved the issue, I just needed to rename folder for the storage, somehow the Hyper-V Manager was pointing to a different place, then the black blinking issue was a boot problem so i Booted using the CD or ISO and go to the recovery options. Then in the command prompt i used this boot recovery steps,
Type  bcdedit and press enter

You should see the windows boot manager in one partition and the loader in another one. If that's the case, then type:

bootrec /fixmbr and press enter
bootrec /fixboot and press enter
reboot computer

Thank you very much for your guide it helped a lot.
