Title: Unable to restore Virtual Machine to alternate ESX Host.
Date: Dec 10
Product & Version: VMware 1.1 / 1.2
OS Version: All
Module & Version: N/A
Application version: N/A
When trying to restore a Virtual Machine to an alternate ESX Host, the job is failing.
The logs show "...failed with error P2VError UNKOWN_METHOD_FAULT (sysimage.fault.ClonePreparationFault)".
The original VM is on server "A" which has the VMware 3.0.3 Convertor (build 89816) installed.
The restore job is configured to use "COS-less" (VCB Proxy) and tried to use the alternate ESX host name (Server "B"), FQDN and IP address, but with no success.
The problem was when NetVault is passing the VMConvertor commands it was specifying to use a Datastore name that didn't exist on the destination server, (Server "B").
On the destination server restoring to (Server "B"), create a Datastore with the name matching the source host and the restore should complete successfully.
