i am in the midst of p-v and have some issue obtaining hw info. I belive its realted to converter version.
I am looking for version 5.1 everywhere and unable to get one.
If anyone have converter standalone 5.1 version , Kindly share. (maybe dropbox?)
I believe only 5.5 and 6.0 are available now.
What's the vCenter version, ESXi version
What is the Guest OS of the machine that you want to convert?
i have created the support ticket and they gave up already. Said converter wont support raid disks.
physical server - win2003r2 ent
The disks are san disks and some are configured into striped mode in os.
however,I have similar server setup but have no issue on that server.
But that particular server hardware cant be detected.weird.
i have tried version 5.0 5.5 and 6.0
with 5.5 and 6.0 i have the same error when detecting hardware info. ( power-on machine, input target credential , deploy agent ,error )
with 5.0, i pass that stage and obviously hit error when loging to vcenter because its 5.0 ( power-on machine, input target credential , deploy agent , input vcenter credential , UI hang)
thats why if i can get 5.1 i belive it may work. slim chance.
I am experiencing the same problem.
When using version 6.x it hangs on the "retrieving source.."information.
Since we are using vCenter and vSphere 5.1, I tried to download that version of converter but I cannot download it (VMWare internet page errors and/or not egible).
