    vmware convertor fails to convert a windows 2008 r2 server

    yeowkm2809 Novice

      I am trying to convert a windows 2008 r2 server to my ESXi 5.5 host.

      this is a file server with C drive 60gb, D drive 1.6TB.

      vmware convertor version used is 5.5.3


      i tried 2 times.

      first time it fails at 90%.

      2nd time it fails at 46%.

      i need to convert this file server as it is actually running on virtualbox from my backup images.

      i need to restore it back to my ESXi host.



      it fails with the following error


      SingleVolumeCloneTask:DoRun: Volume cloning failed with clone error BlockLevelVolumeCloneMgr::CloneVolume: Detected a write error during the cloning of volume \WindowsBitmapDriverVolumeId=[08-03-AE-BE-00-40-00-00-00-00-00-00]. Error: 37409 (type: 1, code: 2338).
