Unable to create virtual machine using 5.5

Hi all,

I have just installed Converter 5.5. While trying to p2v I get (at the last step) the following message:

"Unable to create virtual machine <name>".

I did p2v for another server using 5.1 about 1-2 months ago and it just worked (the two servers are not related at all)

In the logs I found:

2013-11-27T08:18:05.806Z [15560 info 'wizardController'] FillPage()

2013-11-27T08:18:11.256Z [10436 error 'wizardController'] Unable to submit job: converter.fault.VmCreationFault

2013-11-27T08:18:11.256Z [12196 error 'ConversionState'] Submit job failed: Unable to create virtual machine 'servername'.

2013-11-27T08:18:11.256Z [12196 error 'ConverterWizardWindow'] Next/Finish failed: Unable to create virtual machine 'servername'.

2013-11-27T08:18:51.226Z [12196 info 'ConverterSession'] Converter data provider created.

Can anybody tell me where is the problem ?

Probably the user you used to log in VC have no permissions to create VM.

Could you upload the full log bundle?

I use my account and I have permissions to create VM. Using vSphere Client I can do that using my credentials.

The zip is password protected. Besides it doesn't contain the worker log, which is more interesting.
