Vmware Converter fails with Network Failed

Hi there,

we have the following situation.

We have a Stratus Avance Aplliance which currently holds the virtual Machines.

This Appliance is in core a Xen Server.

We now want to move to vmware and are trying to move the vms from that appliance to vmware.

For that we use a P2V Conversion with the VMWare Converter Standalone Version 6.

Unfortunately the Conversion aborts with beeing unable to block level Clone the volumes.

THe Log itself says:

Sysimgbase_DiskLib_Write failed with 'NBD_ERR_NETWORK_CONNECT' (error code:2338)

After doing some research i found a few tips to handle that.

One said to convert the physical volumes seperately.

That failded too.

THe other said to check the firewall.

Firewall on Windows Host ist deactivated and the ports on the ESXI 6.0 are open.

The Servers are connected to the same switch.

Any ideas?

With kind Regards

Sascha
