The machine I am trying to image is a physical windows 2000 server
the agent has been installed and seems to be working
The client does not want to restart this machine due to its age.
I can connect via smb to the storage point the Z drive.
I connect as administrator and can move files into the Z drive.
Then from the vConverter machine a EC2 instance I get to here and the error
does not make sense. If I screw up the password I get user creditial errors.
So something else is happening that after a good login a test is run that bombs
with a default error message.
Same login as the Z: mount works on.
I have attached the conversion diagnostics.
I have opened up the ec2 firewall to all ports for the source machine IP.
So Not sure what the issue is.
1. I can not ask to restart the source machine.
2. I have full control over the ec2 instance.
Thanks in advance for any Help
First of all: Converter 5.0 do not support Windows 2000, you need to use Converter 4.0.1 instead check supported GOS here https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/converter_pubs.html.
In the log I see that converter uses IPv6 adress [::1] while your network share uses IPv4 - please check that all connections are available with one type of IPs.
There are tricks for converting EC2 machines, see http://communities.vmware.com/message/2017112#2017112
