I am trying Virtualize my windows 2008 Server , & unfortunately have been running to this error msg 1% after the converter starts. The Error Msg is "Unable to create a VSS Snapshot of the Source Volume 2147754767 (0x8004230f) can any one help? thanks
Do you have any FAT volumes on the existing server? have you tried doing a cold-conversion with the machine powered off?– Chopper3Jun 8, 2014 at 14:03
hi Chopper3, the system is based on usual NTFS system. I have note tried the cold-conversion. Appreciate if you could guide me on that– monketrip28Jun 9, 2014 at 5:28
I trust you are using the vCenter Converter Standalone for the conversion? If so, are you using the latest version? Have you seen this vmWare KB article on this topic?– the-wabbitJun 18, 2014 at 8:47
HI all... Thank you for all your posts.... The problem was the USB Devices.... as soon as I removed them it worked flawlessly... again.. Thank you– monketrip28Jun 24, 2014 at 11:36
Thank you for all your posts.... The problem was the USB Devices.... as soon as I removed them it worked flawlessly... again.. as a side not I like to add that it will not harm if you put your VSS on manual if its on automatic.... that should do the trick!.....
