Convert Windows 10 1607 Russian to vmware

Hello.

We have problems with converting the machine (Powered ON, Remote windows machine) to a virtual environment vmware.

Source machine (Powered ON, Remote windows machine): Windows 10 1607 Enterprise Russian

Converter: Vmware vCenter Converter Standalone 6.1.1 build-3533064 (OS Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard SP1 English)

Vcenter: VMware vCenter Server Version 6.0.0 Build 3634793

ESXi host: VMware ESXi 6.0.0 build 3620759

The process of cloning and copying disks is normal.

But when start customization we have error:

Error: Unable to create the customization deployment file.

And task FAILED:

  FAILED: Unable to proceed since the Sysprep parameters provided are not correct.

In converter-agent logs we see:

Apparently the problem is the presence of Russian characters (encoding) in the path, for GetShortPathName.

Can we work around this problem?

Yes, its most likely UTF support related issue. Contact vmware support to handle this.

If create new local administrator user with english characters.

And run convert agent service as this user, customization finaly normal and convert succesfully.

With russian characters trubles.
