SCVMM 2008 R2 converting VMware ESX Error (2912)

 

I have Windows Server 2008 R2 hosts running HyperV.  Using SCVMM 2008 R2 to migrate existing VMware ESX VM's. I copied the VMDK and VMX files to the SCVMM Library and then tried to do a V2V and get the following errors when trying to migrate a VMware VM:

“Error (2912)
An internal error has occurred trying to contact an agent on the MyServerName.DNS.com server.
(Unknown error (0x8004232c)).”

The conversion gets to 66% and fails on the task 1.3 “Make operating system virtualizable[sic]”

Turns out this stage is trying to START the VM to remove VMware tools and and install the Integration Services. But there was no NIC card selected so it fails.

Try again with a network card and voilĂ .
