    How to specify the library ( /lib ) path vCenter Converter Standalone uses to convert a Linux machine

    Jyytuki Lurker

      After some updates to our Linux Debian server we tried to virtualize it with vCenter Converter Standalone. Before the update this process worked multiple times, but now we got a "Unable to reconfigure the destination virtual machine." error. I'll paste the more specific message at the end of the post. After reading the error log and doing some research I came to the conclusion that the converter needs to find some modules in /lib folder and the update moved the files from /lib to /lib/i386-linux-gnu.

       

      How do I tell the converter that those files exist in different folder?

       

      An update about the situation:

      Despite the error the converted machine seems to work and the modules can be found from the virtual machine.

       

      Here is the error:
