V2V converter and ESXi 5.1 crash

Postby igorpal » Sun Apr 21, 2013 5:19 am

The story is as follow.
Windows XP virtual machine .vmdk was converted to ESX format.
Machine is perfectly running on ESXi 5.1.
Next step - updating VMware tools driver in ESXi for xp guest - done.
Then restart requested.
During restart i get ESXi server crashed. First in my life :)
Situation is repeatable. I think the source is in the vmware tools driver and ESXі bug in kernel.
I think it is a BIG problem of VMware first, not starwind.
However I believe they better listen to you :)

Hello Igor,

Well, it looks like you are absolutely correct in your assumption - it looks like VMware related issue. The VM runned successfully before driver update, which means that conversion passed successfully.
