I am working on the W2K3 server P2V migration.
vCenter Cnverter works fine. I got new vm created.
I have it started.
Got message about Windows reactivation and skip it at this point.
I logged in and see that deploypkg is started in cmd window.
It hang and stay at this point for a long time.
I have it stopped. Copied C:\Temp\ImgCustTemp folder to the different folder (first time I did not do that and this folder disappeared after reboot).
I have tried to run
deploypkg -deploy deploypkg.cab
It started and hang as well.
Is it something I can do manually? Run some tool which will built hardware conversion script for the new VM?
You may have already tried the "Safe mode"? Just asking.
If not, try to disable manually services related to physical hardware BEFORE start the conversion process. Services or software which does monitoring etc....
You may also want to look at my blog post: http://www.vladan.fr/vmware-converter-best-practices/
Hope it helps.
I think that you have an OEM license for your w2k3, and is not possible to use in another Hardware, at least to my knowledge....
