I  am unable to P2V  Linux Machine, details given below:

VCENTER : 6.5
Source Machine: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2
Destination: ESXi 6.5
Convertor: 6.2.0 (correct build)

I am getting various issues and when I resolve one issue, it generates another issue.  

Issue1: FAILED: A general system error occurred:
Network error. Host x.x.x.x key can't be retrieved. (return code 2)

Issue2: FAILED: Unable to obtain the IP address of the helper virtual machine.

Issue3: At Times it is stuck at 1% for a long time.


I did a Google Search and when I resolve one issue, it generates another issue.

I seek guidance from Experts.  VMware has refused to support saying that  the Converter is working fine and something at the OS end.
This is a production server and I really need to do a P2V.

Likely reason for no response.

Someone would have to setup an exact match for your runtime environment, host side + VM side, to resolve your problem.

This work likely would take a significant amount of time.

Might be best for you to hire someone to work help you resolve this.

Tip: "VMware has refused to support saying that  the Converter is working fine and something at the OS end." This is likely correct as many people use p2v successfully, every day.
