I'm trying to use convert to hot clone a win2008 sp2 box in our envir.
We're running vsphere 4.1 on esxi 4.1 hosts.

I've been able to convert physical servers before, but this one's
giving me fits.

If I try from any other machine, converter fails saying it's unable to
reach the physical machine (by dns or ip addy). I figure this is
probably the local firewall on this '08 server, haven't had the guts to
try turning it off again after the 1st time I did that disconnected
everyone from this box.

I installed converter onto the physical box itself & try to convert it
that way, but get an error saying incorrect credentials when it tries
to login.

I know the userid/pwd are correct, what else could be going on?
