It seems every time I use VMware Converter, there’s some new error that jumps up and makes me stumble!
Yesterday the problem was;
FAILED: A file I/O error occurred while accessing
Some searching told me this is actually a DNS problem, (where the converter could not resolve the DNS name of the machine being converted). BUT I had put the FQDN directly into this machines ‘hosts file’ so I doubt that was my problem. I suspect it was the fact that this machine was presenting a certificate that wasn’t trusted was actually the problem.
But either way the way to fix it is to re-queue the job again, but this time choose “Use proxy mode“.
Then it worked fine.
