VM Forum Team,
I have attempted on 5 separate attempts to convert a P2V machine using a hot back up ( due to encrypted disk).
Each time it fails with the following error code: FAILED: Unable to create a VSS snapshot of the source volume(s). Error code: 2147754774 (0x80042316)...
I have tried the following remediation steps to accomplish a work around:
At this point I am look for any further recommendations.
Advice would be appricated.. the log is attached to this msg.
* Follow on question, could I use MS backup to create a system image and then convert that to VDMK?*
VSS is Microsoft system component, you should search in msdn forum. Also you should search/ask 'Sophos Encryption' support about this issue.
The Converter will not start P2V task without sucessful snapshot.
Check out the manual about supported 3rd party disk formats.
