Virtual Machine Conversion Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Server 2008 R2 virtual machine hosted in Vmware ESX 4.1 that fails converting to Hyper-V Server 2012. 

    MS Virtual Machine Converter fails with the following error: The entry e219b01c is not a supported disk database entry for the descriptor.

    I've converted several other virtual machines prior to this without a problem. This particular VM is the last remaining on this ESX host.

  • Hi W-ILS,

    Have you tried using Disk2vhd?

    We know that the difference between the Disk2vhd and MVMC are:

    - Disk2vhd is used to virtualize a physical hard disk.

    - Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter can help to migrate VMs from VMware vSphere to Hyper-V platform.

    But I've used the Disk2vhd to virtualize virtual machines and everything went well.

    Or you can use the Virtual Machine Manager, version for evaluation. How to spot an activity, you can use the trial version.
