While trying to reverse image a vDisk, the conversion from volume (C:\) to volume (G:\), failed halfway through with the error, "Encountered an improper argument"
You see the error when you open the XenConvert Log. You can locate the XenConvert log in:
- C:\Program Files\Citrix\XenConvert\XenConvert.txt
The application is very easy to use. Just download it and click the "Search" button.
- C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\InstallData\InstallCache\
So what now? You can exclude the problem directories and copy them off, so that you can copy them back into your vm after you v2v them back into PVS. I have decided to zip the InstallCache directory so that it no longer technically exists and will not cause any issues. That in return will let me to v2v as much as I need to, and then when I am finished, I will unzip the directory.
Excluding directories from the XenCovert Process
To exclude directories from the XenConvert process, you will need to add the directory under the "exclude" section in the XenConvert.ini file. That file is located at:
- C:\Program Files\Citrix\XenConvert\XenConvert.ini
After running XenConvert now, I receive a "Conversion was successful!"
