I'm trying to turn in virtual machine a ibm server with o.s. linux. Boot from the cd of converter, set the ip
address (dhcp or manually) and boot well. But once started I see all my net but it doesn't answer to ping request. When I throw the process of virtualización gives a
mistake at the beginning of disc cloning. I believe that is because my serer ESX does not receive response of
his ip. Someone can say to me to that if
it's normal that does not answer in the net?
Thank you very much.
Some messages from log:
Can you check if you can telnet to port 902 on your ESX from the linux machine (not booting from Boot CD)? BTW you can also try converter 4.0 beta (free). It lets you do a hot clone of linux systems.
I do a telnet to esx server on port 902 and works, i try telnet to virtual center server on port 443 and works too.
Now i got beta versión and fails hot cloning, but now in log says this:
and finally fail. In converter server message says "waiting to VM Helper connection"
I forget to say that my source linux machine have lan 192.168.90.x , virtual center 192.168.1.x and esx server 192.168.254.x . But all the servers can reach others. I have a firewall but telnet check works so i think isn't a port problem.
You would probably have better luck posting 4.0 beta related problems to the 4.0 beta forum. I will update the post if I can think of possible problems...right now I am not sure of what it could be. It seems like connectivity issues to your ESX, but like you said your telnet works.
