    cant convert to smb share

    johnsmith1 Novice


      I installed VMware vcenter converter 6.2.0 build 8466193 (latest one) which has in log history fix for smb share I had.


      Conversion of a powered on Windows machine to an SMB share fails with the following error message: Unable to obtain the lock on virtual disks.

      This issue is resolved in this release.


      even that issue was fixed I have another issue which is thrown once I execute convertion ... with status FAILED: Insufficient permissions to access the source.


      2018-11-09T15:32:38.150+01:00 info vmware-converter-server[17732] [Originator@6876 sub=Default] [task,379] [task-2] -- ERROR -- Convert: converter.fault.ImportSourceNoPermission

      --> (converter.fault.ImportSourceNoPermission) {

      -->    faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,

      -->    source = "\\\storage3-shared\vmware-x11-clone-20181109\x11\x11.vmx",

      -->    msg = ""

      --> }


      why clone to SMB share is still broken? or do I miss something?
