Vmware Converter 5.1 Platform-specific Error 2338

There should be some agent zip somewhere in it; you may attach the whole bundle as well.If it is not there, look in the source machine, in "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\logs" Every time I try to run it, the VM is created, then after a couple of minutes it fails without copying any data and deletes the VM. It looks like you are the windshield this time, bravo.   0 Habanero OP B-C Jun 18, 2012 at 2:15 UTC   Many Thanks!

Note: Only a member of this blog may post a comment. I removed Converter v5.5 and installed v5.1. It may not be a limitation of the converter, but actually your version of vSphere with the 2TB limit. 5.5 removed the 2TB limit with the VMFS5. The time to complete is calculated on current transfer speed, it is possible that after hours of working the speed and time to complete to be changed dramatically.

Any help will be highly appreciated. You are correct about Converter view of disk resize, but if you optimize your disk, then you can decrease partition type from OS (use DiskManager to shrink the volume size).
