FAILED: An error occurred during the conversion

Jump to solution

I installed the VMware vCenter Standalone Converter software on our 64 bit Redhat system that needs to be virtualized, then I also installed it on a Windows XP system on the network. Next I installed the ESX server on a third system. The Windows system was able to start a conversion of the Redhat box onto the ESX server, however the conversion failed with the message: FAILED: An error occurred during the conversion

How do I troubleshoot this? I have attached the logs that were created for this attempt.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

I removed the /var/log/lastlog file, it reported a size that was massive.

I also checked the converter-agent.xml file, the keepSparseFile tag was already set to True.

After this change and check I ran the converter again, and this time it succeeded! Wow, thank you so much!
