Unknown error generated from client (catchall)

Hi,

my Environment: Virtual Center 2.5U1 installed on a physical GERMAN Windows 20003 Server (the Server is slso DC!!), 6 ESX Hosts ESX 3.0.2U1 --> ESX 3.5

When i try to import a machine with the VCS Converter Plugin i get this Error message: Unknown error generated from client (catchall)

I have read this thred: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/119447 but it is no solution for me.

****************************************************************************************************************************

This issue is due to the ASCII to UTF-8 string conversion in the following fields:

  • Annotation

  • Display name

  • Floppy image name

  • Parallel port file name

  • Serial port file name

  • CDROM iso name

These fields are may not contain any non standard Engish ASCII characters. (Any other than ASCII 33-127)

****************************************************************************************************************************

I dont find any non standard english ASCII characters.

This is the log from the client:

Somebody know a good way to find the solution??

First off, you should re-think your strategies for converting a DC.

Do not attempt to convert a Windows operating system that is currently functioning as a domain controller. Domain controllers are extremely sensitive to hardware changes and the virtual hardware presented to a virtual machine is different from the physical hardware presented to a physical machine. A virtual machine created from an active domain controller may exhibit unexpected behavior.

VMware recommends removing a domain controller from its domain controller role, virtualizing it, then put the resulting virtual machine back into its domain controller role again.

The "invalid token" is specific to non-English characters in the annotation field not being translated into UTF-8 before conversion. If you are absolutely certain this is fine, I would also check ALL the environment variables as well.
