  • Importing P2V

    Hi

    i have installed the trial version on the ESX , VI and the convertor
    for testing ,
    i tried to P2V one of our servers and it worked fine
    when i tried to do the same to another machine i got the error :
    ERROR: Failed to take snapshot of a source volume.
    Possible causes include not having any NTFS volumes on Windows XP or Windows 2003 source systems,
    and not having enough free disk space.

    Source detail : windows server 2003 STD
    2x72 HD raid 0+1 (C:\and D:\ )

    the VI server in installed on a windows XP ( i also have a nother one on w2k3 , also doesnt work)

    here is the LOG file :

          Re: Importing P2V

          P2V an online production server that cannot have an outage to a trial version of ESX with no paid support is a bold move. May I suggest a more conservative intermediate step so that you do not cause an outage of your production server?

          What version of VMware Converter are you using?
