Linux P2V failed at 1% if can't make connection between helper vm and source machine,
check route between helper vm and source machine.
I am new in this what is helper machine and how to check it
you can see above the output of netstat -nr
There is a switch in converter-worker.xml: useSourcePasswordInHelperVm - change it to true, (look at option powerOffHelperVm too) restart service and restart conversion.
As result you can log in helper vm as user in source machine.
Then do ping, traceroute, etc...
where this helper VM reside it this an other VM or my source or my destination
really not getting any hint to proceed

Note: By default, the converter-worker.xml file is located at:
- Windows 7 and 2008 Server – C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
- Windows Vista, XP and 2003 Server – %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
- In older Windows versions – %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
- Open the
converter-worker.xmlfile in a text editor and change the
- Change the powerOffHelperVm flag from true to false .
- Save and close the converter-worker.xml file.
- Restart Converter Standalone Worker service.
I did all this but could not log in to the helper VM
root / password but not getting in the helper VM
even I assigned a new unique IP to helper VM but cloud not reach to default gateway even.

The helper VM is the destination VM. How did you connect to it? Is it using vSphere client? I suppose you retried the conversion after restarting worker service. What is the the helper message when you try to login with root?
I am able to connect to helper vm, I used the root user and password the same source machine has it
I am able to get inside now but when I assigned the IP address to helper VM I can't even login to default gateway
The physical linux i'm trying to convert use 10.200.24.33
My Converter server is 10.0.21.158
My ESX host is 10.200.24.101
vcenter is 10.0.22.147
I assigned IP to helper VM as
IP : 10.200.24.4
Mask " 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 10.200.24.1
but when I login to Helper VM I can't even ping Default Gateway
Are you sure set correct vLan for vM Helper ?
Check the virtual network the helper VM is on. Does it have an uplink or Is it isolated? What is its VLAN? Where is the gateway and is it routed to that virtual network? Things like that.
If I understand correctly, the issue is not converter related.
ok let me know what you want to know more about it so I can provide you, to get it done
That's not what I mean. You need to provide connectivity from the destination VM to the source (SSH connection to be more specific).
How exactly the network is configured and what prevents the connection is not something easily done remotely (if at all). Better work with the network administrator of your datacenter (or whoever happens to perform that role).
