I'm having difficulty here getting this error: (13257)Virtual machine manager is unable to convert servername.domainname because required files are missing.Recommended action: copy the file sp3.cab to the "C:\program files\microsoft system center virtual machine manager 2008 r2\patch import" on the virtual machine manager server, run the Add-patch cmdlet to add the required files to the virtual machine manager patch cache, and then try the operation again. The file sp3.cab is located either at %windir%\driver cache\I386 on servername.domainname, or on the microsoft windows xp professional (enu, I386) installation media.n/if sp3.cab is not available, locate dc21x4.sys (version: 0.0) on the installation media, copy the file to "C:\program files\Microsoft system center virtual machine manager 2008 r2\patch import", and then run the add-patch cmdlet to add teh required files to the virtual machine manager patch cache. so I'm doing a p2v from SCVMM 2008 r2 on a windows xp sp3 pc and get the error above. How do I properly run the commands because everything i do the commands are not recognized from the Windows server 2008 ent r2 blade where scvmm is installed. I did copy over the file to the correct directory on my windows server 2008 ent r2. So need to know how i should inititate the commands properly or if there is any other options to be able to convert this win xp machine to a virtual.
I've run the power shell from scvmm's powershell and here are my commands:
3. add-patch C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2\Patch Import\sp3.cab
It fails with the following:
Add-patch : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'C:\Program'.
