error: V-79-57344-41984 of Backup Exec 2012

Hello Jason, I'm IT manager in Italy and I'm trying to use the virtualization features of Backup exec 2012.

When I try to convert a physical machine to a virtual machine the system give me the error V-79-57344-41984.

The description of this error (I have BE 2012 in italian language and I will try to translate in english the message) is:

"the process is aborted with the following error:  unable to create the virtual computer, is requested standby for the warm conversion"

Can you help me ?

Hello Pat,

Are you getting this error while running the P2V job (simultaneous conversion) or while running B2V (first backup to disk and then convert to virtual) job ?

If its during P2V then can you check if B2V is working. Also during conversion are there any errors in the VI editor when its actually trying to create  the Virtual Machine on ESX?




Itried both P2V and B2V,
