Convert Errors VMDK to VHDX when using MVMC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Situation: Exported VM from Virtualizaton Station 3 Export was an .OVF but exported VMDK with it. When I use PS to run MVMC i get the following error. 

    ConvertTo-MvmcVirtualHardDisk : Index out of range
    At line:1 char:1
    + ConvertTo-MvmcVirtualHardDisk -SourceLiteralPath D:\Server\UbuntoWeb_ ...
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : WriteError: (Microsoft.Accel...nversionService:DriveConversionService) [ConvertTo-MvmcVirtualHardDisk], InvalidDataException

    ConvertTo-MvmcVirtualHardDisk : One or more errors occurred.

    Then I ran DSFO.exe to look at the Descriptor file and it reads the following 

    # Disk DescriptorFile
    version=1
    CID=95a464f9
    parentCID=ffffffff
    createType="streamOptimized"

    # Extent description
    RW 524288000 SPARSE "UbuntoWeb_00.vmdk"

    # The Disk Data Base
    #DDB

    ddb.virtualHWVersion = "9 "
    ddb.geometry.cylinders = "520126"
    ddb.geometry.heads = "16"
    ddb.geometry.sectors = "63"
    ddb.adapterType = "ide"

    HAS ANYONE ENCOUNTERED THIS BEFORE
