Symantec System Recovery Physical to virtual (P2V) conversion of Windows 2003 Standard Sp2 x86 to a Hyper-V results in guests failing to detect NIC and start integration services.
When attempting to convert a system image file using the Symantec System Recovery Physical to virtual (P2V) conversion utility, systems running Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 Standard Version 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 32-bit to a Hyper-V guest system results in a guest system that fails to detect its network card, integration services fail to start, and the Hyper-v Manager does not report the guest's heartbeat. This does not appear to occur using other 3rd party converting utilities for this system as well as using the Symantec System Recovery Physical to virtual (P2V) conversion utility on images created from different Windows operating systems.
On some virtual guests, upon initial boot, the following error had occurred:
"virtual adapter not found"
Issue is under investigation
