    Failed to convert virtual machine

    I attempted to convert a VMware VM to Hyper-v from which runs on an ESXi host, through vSphere version 5, to my hyper-v manager running on a different machine. The entire process seemed to be flawless until the very end then a message appeared saying:

    "Failed to convert virtual machine 'XXX'. Failed to convert virtual hard disks: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))"

    Where is the access problem and how can I fix this?

    Hello jstevenh,

    Please attach convertorTrace.log file from the program's directory.

    Hello jstevenh,

    We are looking into your issue, which seems to be a problem with Windows Server 2008. You may need to use the previous version of the 5nine V2V Easy Converter software (pre 1.0.9) that handles it with no problems at all. We may load it shortly to our website for your specific case, or will realese the new version, which will contain a fix for this issue.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Still no fix. I just installed the latest version with the same problem. I even switched to a new 2012 Hyper-V server....same problem.

    Ideas? I would really like to get this working.

    Hello Steve,

    There is no known issue with Hyper-V Server 2012. Please make sure, that you launch the program as Administrator.
    If this does not help, please attach your new convertorTrace.log from the program directory.

    HI all,

    Sorry to bump an old thread but I am having exactly the same issue, my convertorTrace.log is attached. I have had a quick look myself and it looks like it is failing at the convert vmdk to vhd step but I could be completely wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    Please download the most recent version of 5nine V2V Easy Converter at: http://www.5nine.com/v2vconverter
    The program archive now includes version that supports 2008 servers.
