Issue

I am getting an error "current license or ESXi version prohibits execution" when I try to migrate VMs from VMware to Hyper-V using Acronis V2V Easy Converter. What might be causing this, and how do I fix it?

Resolution

This error is related to running an unlicensed version of ESXi and trying to migrate a VM that is already running. This is by design and due to limitations within the free ESXi API. To resolve this error please try stopping the VM before migrating or upgrade to a licensed version of the ESXi.
