VMware vCenter Converter - P2V Linux Machine

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm trying to do P2V with a Debian powered-on source. Everything works perfectly up until the point of selecting destination. It states that the destination type is VMware Infrastructure virtual machine. It asks for the server details and along the right it states that supported VMware Infrastructure products include VMware vCenter Server 2.0, 2.5 and 4.0. Great, I thought, because I'm running VMware vCenter Server 4.0.1 on this machine. So I try to specify the details of my machine but I get any one of a few errors: Timeout Unable to recognise the server type or version Target machine ac (HowTos)
