P2V This format is not supported Converted error

Postby IT-Paperfree » Fri Jan 25, 2019 5:02 pm

Hi,

Just downloaded the new V2V converter.

Trying to P2V W2008R2 an receive this message after a few minutes:

This format is not supported (19) [122] Current virtual disk not supported. Converted error.

Any clues?

Regards

Do you run the converter on the physical host that needs conversion to a VM?

the converter worked beautifully on win2016 --> ie converting win2016 physical host to vhdx

However, the converter gave the above reported [122] error on Windows 7 and Windows 2008 r2 host -- when attempting to convert them to vhdx

The error should be easily reproduced by StarWind staff

Thx

Unfortunately, Windows 7 and Windows 2008 are not supported by StarWind V2V converter.

Hi Oleg,

When you said Windows 7 and Windows 2008 are not supported - they don't seem to be entirely true.

Windows 7 / Windows 2008 r2 hosts converted to VDMK without error.

For the same Windows 7 / Windows 2008 r2 hosts, attempted conversion to VHD or VHDX however failed with the [122] error.

More importantly, the error message says "current virtual disk not supported" - it did not say conversion not supported just the virtual disk (vhd/vhdx). As mentioned above, conversion of the same hosts to VDMK format are successful.

First class vmware support and hyper-v support not as good?

Thx

The libraries needed for conversion to VHD or VHDX of OS Windows 7 / Windows 2008 are not added yet.
They should be added to the next builds.

I get this same error whenever a .VHD file is either the source or destination. I've been using this utility since 5.6 and it has always worked well on VHD to VMDK and vice versa . I just downloaded the latest release, which is version 8, I believe. Did you receive and answer on this issue?
Documents says it supports VHD and VHDX.

Hello

Seeing the exact same issue with a Win7 machine. Is it supposed to be supported now ? If so happy to "debug" it...

The latest released build was published on January, 21. So, for now no progress in Windows 7 support. Feel free to check Release Notes from time to time for an update.
