P2V Conversion failed at 60 %


Issue: Recently, one of my customer contacted me for P2V conversion issue. P2V conversion failed at 60 %. Trying to convert Windows Server 2003 SP2 BlackBerry server on Windows Server 2008 R2 DataCenter Hyper-V Virtual Machine.

Error (2944)

“VMM is unable to complete the requested operation because the server name %ServerName; could not be resolved. Try the operation again. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator.”



Cause: Physical host was not able to resolve FQDN server name of VMM host.

Resolution: Found VMM server DNS record is missing in DNS server. Updated the DNS record and able to perform P2V.

    Many many many many thanks, that was exactly my problem. I changed my dns server in the mean time while doing the p2v. The scvmm server must not have been included in the new dns record. Thank you very much!
