MORE INFORMATION

List of issues that are fixed

You use System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 to perform an offline physical to virtual (P2V) conversion. The computer that is running System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 is located on a different subnet from the source computer. However, both computers are configured to use an IP address range, such as 10.x.x.x. The offline P2V conversion fails with the following error message:

Error (3133) Virtual Machine Manager could not connect to source computer servername.domainname.com after it restarted into Windows PE (temporary computer name is p2v-ldjj). Automatic restart to the original operating system is scheduled to occur within 15 minutes. Recommended Action If servername.domainname.com does not restart in 15 minutes, manually restart it back into the original operating system using the boot menu

You convert a physical computer to a virtual machine by using VMWare VirtualCenter. One of the disks on the physical computer is larger than 256 gigabytes (GB). You add the VMWare VirtualCenter server to System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008. When you try to create a virtual machine, the operation fails with the following error message:

VMM Cannot find VirtualHardDisk object. Ensure the library object is valid, then try the operation again. ID: 801
