    P2V with Converter standalone 5.5 - Permission to perform this operation denied

    Mspec Lurker

      Hi,

       

      Im atempting to perform a P2V and stall at the Source System section with "permission to perform this operation was denied" (screen shot attatched as 1.jpg - Note, i blanked out part of the acocunt name with ***)

       

      I've had a dig around the forums and seen similar V2V issues where vCenter permissions were not high enough - not an issue here as it's a P2V and I havent got to destination credentials as yet,

       

      I've also seen mention of local admin rights required on source server. I've done this. The account i'm using is a domain admin and although domain admins are part of the local administrators permissions group i've also added my comain account to the source servers Administrators group too.

       

      I've also started the application with "run as Administrator" when logged in with my domain admin account and when logged in with local Administrator account.

       

      now for some logs:

      I see in the log "2014-01-30T10:10:04.304+11:00 [01688 info 'Libs'] [ADS] Account muz_***_a found, but not local"

      but it is part of the local Administrators group. I've added it to both the source physical server (evlp2v102) and the VM that is set up as the converter server (evlp2v001vs)

       

       

      any help or sugestions appreciated

       

      Also worth noting that is i use the loval Administrator credentials i can get past this.

       

      However, I am atempting to use the Domain credentials as part of troubleshooting/testing with another P2V issue

      when when a a domain member physical server is p2v, the virtual instance is not longer a valid domain member (ie: can not log into that VM with domain credentials)
