ERROR: Unable to open file %s

Jump to solution

I am trying to use consolidator, or converter enterprise to P2V several 64Bit Windows 2003 Servers. But I keep getting the following error:

ERROR: Unable to open file %s

I'm running VC 2.3 U2, and Converter Enterprise 3.0.3 Build 89816

I have attached the converter log.

Does anyone have any ideal what may be causing my issue?

Thanks in advance,

geob,

top line of that file states something else for the version of converter in use:

Log for VMware Converter Agent, pid=1892, version=3.0.2u1, build=build-62456, option=Release, section=2

Failed to open file %s is about attempting to open the VMDK file to copy data into.

VMFolder = clone-essapd020-w085/clone-essapd020-w085.vmdk

ESX Server: essvmp020-006.emrcorp.local:902

Wherever converter is running from can't do one of the following:

*Resolve the ESX host name (essvmp020-006.emrcorp.local)

*There is a NAT between the ESX host and the source system

*There is a port blockage on TCP 902

Those are the most common problems.

The problem was a port issue. 902 was blocked between the machine I was attempting to P2V and the hosts.
