We have found an issue which I wanted to update the users about. If the VM being used for conversion, the secondary channel 0 and 1 shouldn’t have been mapped already for the VM. The script will fail otherwise. We are fixing the issue. In the mean time here are the steps to remove the mapping.

  1. Open SCVMM Admin console.
  2. Right click on the VM -> Select Properties
  3. Select “Hardware Configuration” tab.
  4. Under “Bus Configuration”, if you see any DVD mapped to Secondary channels, remove them.
