Backup Exec 2012 - P2V on ESXI Free Edition
I am wondering if I can use the P2V feature in Backup Exec 2012 to the free edition of ESXI 5.0. I have tried to run the job to accomplish this but it errors out with the message below.
"Convert Server to Virtual 00001 -- The job failed with the following error: Failed to authenticate with the target server required for creating a standby copy. Verify that you are using the correct credentials to access the target server."
I did find a few items while Google searching that the free edition needs to licensed for VDDK APIs. Can anyone verify this?
