To produce the logs, simply open up your VMware Converter 3.x application and choose

File --> Export Logs

This will produce a zip file for which you can attach to your response.

Not enough space available at destination

Image processing task has failed with MethodFault::Exception: sysimage.fault.IncompatibilityFault

Check to ensure you have enough space at the destination. You can try saving the image in 2gb chunks instead of 1 very large file.
