    Failed to provision new virtual machine error message

    Good morning,

    I am having issues converting a VM from VMware 5.1 to Hyper-v. I have been using 5Nine easy converter with great success over the last few weeks but have run into an issue.

    I have made sure there's no snapshots on the Vmware end and run Easy Converter as administrator.

    We are using VMware 5.1. The VM i am converting has a "MAPPED RAW LUN" (not a virtual disk) and was wondering id this was an issue?

    The full error message i get is: "Failed to convert virtual machine "Servername". Failed to provision a new virtual machine".

    Any help would be most welcome.

    Thanks,
    James

    Hi James,

    Thank you for sharing your great experience with converting VMs with 5nine V2V Easy Converter, I am glad we can help.

    To give you some perspective on the conversion process:
    As a first step 5nine V2V Easy Converter copies VMware virtual hard disk file to a temp location, to prevent any potential modifications to the virtual disk, and then it performs conversion to Hyper-V format.
    For VMs directly connected to LUN, there is no virtual disk, that we can copy, therefore conversion is not possible at the moment.

    Please let me know, if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,
    Alexander
