vmware converter needs the eventlog service to be running

I was P2Ving a Windows 2000 machine (yes, i know), and the Vmware Converter tool kept on asking to push the vmware converter agent.

Turned out, my client had disabled the eventlog service.  Just make sure the eventlog service is running before you do a P2V with the vmware converter.

According to Vmware only the following services need to be running for a P2V :

  • Workstation
  • Server
  • TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
