Appliance 5230 problem with Vm conversion vmware

Hi, i have a problem for restore a physical server with vm conversion.

in my case my appliance is a master/media

i have copied the vmtools iso into the /tmp to the appliance

The gui ask me to choose the vmtools vmware

when i brows my appliance, i can choose the iso, but when i run the pre-check, i was failed.

i think, it's not the good method, but i don't find any docuements about vm conversion with appliance.

 

Have you got any idea ?

 

Thank's for your help
