Task: p2v a physical Red Hat 5.x Linux DL360 G4.
I have RedHat 5.x Linux server running the 4.0.1 Linux Standalone Converter Agent and Server, and a ESX 4.1 Host. I am connecting the Standalone Client from my laptop to the Linux box and running through the wizard only to have it fail at 1% with the error "failed to connect ISO to remote VM" in the logs.
Everything is patched to the same switch/subnet 10.0.0.0/16, I have disabled the RedHat firewall/iptables and even ran esxcfg-firewall to allow all inbound and outbound traffic to the ESX Host I can telnet and SSH to both parties on 22,443,902,903 where required. I have also enabled root logon via SSH which I believe is a requirement. Logs Attached.
Thanks in advance fo any assistance.
I was just reading the vCenter Converter 4.2 relase notes and have now resolved the issue, buy converting to a ESX 3.5i Host. ESX 4.1 is not supported be the 4.0.1 Standalone Converter.
"Earlier releases of vCenter Converter (versions 3.x and 4.1.x) might not be compatible with VMware vSphere 4.1."
