I am trying to convert a windows server 2008 R2 using vCenter. First, i would like to note i already successfully converted a windows server 2008 using the same process. The process fails for this specific server.
Im using the VMWare vCenter Converter Standalone v5.5.0 and i'm trying to convert a physical windows 2008 server to a virtual one.
After digging the internet i found several solutions:
Adding the user to the local administrators group on both the source and destination servers Running the software as an administrator (right click > run as an administrator)
I have tried both options, yet i still get "permission to perform this operation was denied". I am running vCenter from a windows 7 computer which is part of the domain and the account is part of the local administrators group. Same account is part of the windows server Domain Admins group and local Administrators group.
Any ideas on how i can bypass this error ? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
