I have a strange problem on one of my virtual centers.I installed the plugin for vmware converter enterprise and I have enabled it.Everything works (my VI client doesn't crash) but when I right-click on my ESX 3.5 host, I see the option to "import machine" but it is greyed out.I already uninstalled Vmware converter and reinstall.nothing changes.I have tried with and without the converter agent,nothing changes.
With update manager plug-in everything is fine.
My virtual center machine is a VM on that host.Is that causing a problem?
Help me,I don't know what else to try?
Service is running yes.
I tried this installation with two customers already without problems.It is just here that it doesn't work.The only difference. The SQL database was migrated from SQL2000 to SQL2005 express on the problematic virtual center server.I don't know if there is a link.Besides this problem, the migrated DB gave me no problems until now.
I also had the same problem occur a couple of days ago. All you need to do is disconnect and remove the hosts from virtualcenter and add them back. The import machine option will be available again. I believe it has something to do with an inconsistant database. Hope this helps!
