I'm using VMware vCenter Converter standalone 4.3.0 to virtualize a windows 2003 server. The server has a 53 GB disk, after 4% the virtualization fails the error message:

Remote server closed connection after 0 response bytes read

UPDATE:

In the converter log I can see:

It sounds like the remote server killed the connection...

Really, this setup probably looks like you installed vCenter Converter on the Windows 2003 server and pointed it to a target location of... a vCenter or standalone ESXi host? Make sure you have as little as possible between the two (firewalls, etc.) and try again. The converter utility should also have some detailed logs...

I've updated the question, the reason seems to be a out of memory exception ... –  markus Oct 4 '12 at 15:49
