Is a one-time virtual conversion to ESXi 6.5 supported

I tried to convert an SSR offline backup on a USB device to a VMware ESXi 6.5 (free edition) but cannot authenticate to the ESXi (invalid user or password), wether with root nor with a new created user. SSH ist working (Putty, WinSCP). Same with System Recovery 2016. Is a conversion to ESXi 6.5 supported and should it work?

Thanks and Regards
Martin

ESXi 6.5 is not supported yet I'm afraid.

Support for this is being added in SP2 (for VSR 16) which is due to be released in the next few weeks.

No problem. Please look out for details of the SP2 release on these forums in the coming weeks.
