P2V Linux Machine Issues

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.

Maybe a simple clone to a new VM, and then manually fix networking and initrd?

After you get it running you can look for and migrate any newer data files...

Or like was said, hire someone else to do it...
