Hello,

we are trying to convert from ESXi vCenter to Azure and we get the following error:

Do you have any idea why this is happening?
Starwind Converter stays at 0 percent for about 10 minutes until it throws the error...

Welcome to StarWind Forum. To me, it looks like a network issue.
Is it an ESXi FREE host set up as a destination?
Can you please try converting a disk alone?

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. We are using vCenter Standard.
Do you mean that we should try to convert the VMDK to a local disk first instead to Azure? The customer is currently testing this and I'm waiting for his feedback

Greetings,

You are always welcome.
Yes, please look into an individual disk conversion. May I also wonder if there are any firewalls in between the Azure and the destination?
Also, can you download the file(s) from Azure and convert them as local images as a workaround?
Please keep me posted.

Converting a disk from ESX to a local disk seems to work fine.
If we take the converted vhdx and try to upload it to Azure, the conversion fails with the same error. Might be an issue with the customers tenant...

Hi,

Yes, can be something related to the permissions in the account or resource groups.
