This issue occurs when the vCenter Converter connection to the network share of the remote computer fails.


Note: Ensure that there are no pending Windows updates on the machine and any anti-virus software is disabled during this process.
To resolve this issue, ensure that you can connect to the remote share.
To ensure that you can connect to the remote share:
  1. Ensure that you can access the shared location on the remote computer.
  2. Ensure that the Server service is running on the source machine:
    1. Click Start > Run, type services.msc, and click OK.
    2. Locate the Server service in the services console and ensure that the status is Started.
    3. If the service is not started, right-click on the service and click Start.
  3. Disable any firewalls, User Access Control (UAC), or Simple File sharing on the remote Windows guest operating system. 

    For the list of necessary ports that are required to be open, see the vCenter Converter Administration Guide.

  6. Manually copy the Converter Agent Installer, VMware-Converter-Agent.exe located at C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone, from the source computer to the remote computer and install the Converter agent.
  7. If the preceding steps do not resolve the issue, install the vCenter Converter Standalone utility on the remote computer and start the conversion from the remote computer.
