Virtual Machine Converter – Cannot Convert VMware VM – Disk configuration

Today I had an issue with virtual machine converter during migration of a VM from VMware to Hyper-V. The screenshot below shows the issue.

The issue shows an configuration missmatch which stopped the convert of the VM.

The solution of the issue is pretty easy. You need to check and change the virtual machine configuration in VMware vCenter.

First you need to check the SCSI Bus logic. There you need to configure LSI Logic.

Second and more likely the reason for the issue is that one or more of your disks are configured as independed. Just uncheck the box and your fine. 🙂
