Was trying to convert on V2V with VM Converter standalone version is getting the folloiwng error .

invalid / explicitly disabled state operation is invoked

There could be different reason for this error . Please check this blog on Vmware community for one of the solution .

The source VM I was trying to convert got 2 VCPU , I have just chaged that to 1 VCPU and the convertion started ok . I will say it was for CPU Mask .

With this we are trying to find what Cisco switch port the IP 10.80.1.145 Binds.Log in to Pcore01 switch. Then do the following.

=====================================================================

PCORE01#ping 10.80.1.145

Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.80.1.145, timeout is 2 seconds:

This can only be done with with L3 switches.

Run CLI command “show mac address-table”, you will get list with Vlan ID, mac address and port info.

Find your port in the list and take mac address which associates with this port. Then run “show arp” command and find the record with mentioned above mac address. You have ip you looking for.

for example:

PCORE02#show mac address-table | include 3/40
110    0017.4284.ef16   dynamic ip,ipx,assigned,other GigabitEthernet3/40   [Some time just put the port number like 3/40]

you have output:
110    0017.4284.ef16   dynamic ip,ipx,assigned,other GigabitEthernet3/40

sh arp | include 0017.4284.ef16

result:
Internet  10.80.10.140            4   0017.4284.ef16  ARPA   Vlan110

So you will get the IP address.
