Error while converting Win2K3 32 Bit | Access is denied (0x80070005) | VMM does not have appropriate permissions


  • Hi All,

    We are getting following error :

    VMM does not have appropriate permissions to access the resource  on the SERVERNAME server.
    Ensure that Virtual Machine Manager has the appropriate rights to perform this action.
    ID: 2910
    Details: Access is denied (0x80070005)

    Also we have noticed that on the remote server Eventlog is throwing below error :

    Event Type:    Error
    Event Source:    Service Control Manager
    Event Category:    None
    Event ID:    7024
    Date:        3/1/2012
    Time:        6:49:29 PM
    User:        N/A
    Computer:    SERVERNAME
    The VMMInstallDetector service terminated with service-specific error 2148925441 (0x80160001).

    Any solution on above?

  • Hi All,

    I got the solution for the same.

    1. Install P2V Agent from SCVMM Server on the Source Machine which you want to convert.

    Location : C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2\agents\p2v\i386\vmmP2VSource2k3.msi

    2. On the Source Machine, Change Service Account to one which is going to be provided in the P2V Conversion wizard.

    e.g. Domain.Name\AccountName


    3. Restart the Service. And you are ready to go.
