Updating the host file fixed it for me. The two domains didn't have DNS resolution though so that is why.
Hi Gibson, I got the issue before, to fix this you have to make sure the following > Firewall have to be disabled for both Converter Host Server, Destination Server and Source Server > vCenter Port (443) and ESXi Port (902) should be allowed in the Firewall > Update your Host File putting all the Host Name and Its IP of the Destination and vCenter Converter Server to Source Server > Update your Host File putting all the Host Name and Its IP of the Source to vCenter Server > Make sure Anivirus for both Source and vCenter Converter server/host is disabled. In some cases, Any antivirus will unexpectedly close/block the connection. *** Source (Can be Physical or Virtual) *** Destination (Your ESXi Host/DataStore) Let us know if it works. Good Luck Man! Keep Virtualizing! Regards, JOf
Yes, this worked for me
For me this was firewall port blocking, opened up a rule to allow it and it worked.
I also corrected the DNS before that, but didn't fix it entirely.
Setting the task to run in proxy mode seems to have sorted out the issue for me too.
