Today I got really frustrated, because I was not able to convert 4 physical servers from the brand Thomas Krenn (Intel, Windows 2003 x86 with SP2) to Virtual Machines through P2V converter of SCVMM.

Everything went fine, but the VM integration services was not able to install. I tried also to install it manually but without success.

The warning was of the P2V task sequence:


Warning (13210)

Timeout occurred while waiting for VM integration services to be installed on virtual machine hostname residing on host hyper-v.domain.com.

Recommended Action

Ensure that the version of the VM integration services binaries matches the version of the guest operating system in the virtual machine and then try the operation again.

Warning (13222)

An internal error occurred while Virtual Guest Services were being installed on virtual machine host residing on host hyper-v.domain.com.

Recommended Action

Try the operation again. If the same error occurs again, contact your support personnel for further help.

The solution was to deactivate some services in Windows 2003 which came with Intel boards.

After that everything went well. I think the most problem if you get in some error during P2V conversation are some services like Landesk, Raid or even from HP Insight Management.

Hope that could help someone.
