I've got 3 virtual machines on an ESXi 5.0 host that I'm trying to migrate to a Hyper-V host using Microsoft's Virtual Machine Converter. I kick off the conversion and everything goes well for a few hours until the conversion fails with the error code found in the log file I'm including. I've tried this same process with two different VMs running on this same host and get the same error.
I found a KB (below) that seeming describes my issue. This KB says that the ESXi server has to be managed by a vCenter Server. That confuses me because I successfully completed a ESXi to Hyper-V conversion using the same conversion software, but for a different ESXi host (running 5.1) for the same client yesterday. This ESXi host was not managed by a vCenter Server. There is no vCenter Server in this environment.
The KB article is below and the log file is attached. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
