Unknown error when getting list of virtual machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed the VMC this morning and launched it. After validating the credentials it began a very long running process where it shows the status of 'Getting list of virtual machines'. After approx five minutes an error dialog is displayed which is blank (aside from a red 'X'). Selecting OK leaves me with a blank list of VMs. There are no events in the application event log. Any help?

  • I have the same exact scenario.  Also, when I run the conversion from the command line I receive "Machine Conversion Failed" after about 5 minutes.  Again, there appear to be no event log entries.

  • Are you connecting to vSphere 4.0? If so MVMC does not support directly connecting to vSphere 4.0. If your 4.0 host is managed by vCenter 4.1 / vCenter 5.0 you can convert VMs on the 4.0 host by connecting to the vCenter servers that is managing the host.
