Failed Coversion after 2 %

I am using vmware converter 3.0 and trying to hot clone a windows 2000 domain controller. I want the virtual to be added to our virtual centre. I go through the wizard fiine, I choose a datastore with enough space. I start the conversion and after 2 % I get the below message

ERROR: Failed to take snapshot of a source volume.

Possible causes include not having any NTFS volumes on Windows XP or Windows 2003 source systems,

and not having enough free disk space.

The source server has enough space on all its drives, so I dont know why this is causing the issue.

Can anyone offer any advice.

did you get this resolved? I had the same problem so i uninstalled the converter agant that was on my source... then re ran the conversion ... and it was fine.. also if you have the full version of converter .. try uninstalling reinstalling the latest version...also it is not a good idea to clone a DC ...
