Convert to Virtual pre-processing for 45 minutes
I am urgently trying to restore a physical server to a Hyper-V VM. Initially I was getting an error:
Failed to create the standby virtual machine required for warm conversion.
I then changed the System Logon Account to a domain admin account and I bypassed that. I was able to submit the restore job, however it is still preprocessing, no byte count, and the VHDX files are at 0 bytes.
Does pre-processing normally take this long, or is there something else happening?
- Server to be restored is a 2008 R2 server that was backed up with SDR enabled. Agent installed.
- Media server is 2008 R2.
- Hyper-V server is 2012 R2. Agent is installed there as well.
Appreciate any help you can give me!
