P2V Errors....again.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've done the search and so far have not found a solution to my problem.

    I just installed SCVMM '08 on a Windows 2008 Standard Server. Updates have been applied. I went and added 2 hosts
    1. Windows 2003 R2 SP2, WinRM 1.1
    2. Windows 2008 Standard Server SP1

    I am attempting to perform a P2V conversion on either one of the machines. Each one reports the same error "job failed to copy vmmp2vsource2k3.msi......" After attempting to perform the Start Scan
    The event log on the machines show the following....
    Windows 2003 Event - The VMInstallDetector service terminated with service-specific error 2148925441 (0x80160001).
    Windows 2008 Event - The VMInstallDetector service terminated with service-specific error 2148925443 (0x80160003).

    I am logged into the SCVMM server as domain admin, the domain admin account is also used on the select source screen. 

    HELP!!!!

  • you can install the p2v agent manually on the sources and try going through the wizard again
