P2V Assistant unexpected error: "modReconfigureFiles"

P2V Assistant unexpected error: "modReconfigureFiles"

P2V Assistant unexpected error: "modReconfigureFiles"

Hi all,

I'm trying to P2V a vmdk from within a helper VM. All files have been restored to the extra vmdk. I start running through P2V assitant and the vmdk is recognized with a Windows 2000 SP4 installation. It shows the Disk Volume and Operating System Information, however when I click NEXT, I get the following error:

An unexpected error occurred in modReconfigureFiles. System Reconfiguration option will not be offered.

Anyone have any idea what this is? A search has revealed nothing for me.

I take it that this was fixed:

Looks like this was operator error on my part....

I redid the backup restore and restored the system state files using ViseVersa which is a utility similar to Robocopy. This merged all off the system state files and that corrected my problem.

Hi tfg13.

Yea, it was all on me....  I redid everything and it works.  It would be nice to know what the error actually means, but I don't feel like burning an incident with VMware.
