Hi everyone,

I did virtualization my physical machine which isrunning under Oracle linux server 6.4. Then I created virtal server on Virtualbox, howerver my Oracle linux serer could not startup. I did the following steps to vitualize:
- Convert physical machines by VMware Vcenter Converter Standalone client 5.5.3. Export it to vmdk files.
- Create virtual machine on Virtualbox 5.1.2, then start Oracle Linux server 6.4.
Oracle Linux Serer could not startup.
Note that I'm successful when runing these vmdk file on VMware ESXi.

Pls see error.

Answer
In such cases forget that path and take the long path.

The path you took is a shortcut to avoid creating a VM of an existing system.

I did NOT research those errors as you would do that.

But when the shortcut fails you create your VM the long way. You install the OS of choice to the VM then install apps and data as required.

VMWare specific problem

Why haven't you consulted them? Also, are you trying to run a 64 bit system virtualized under a 32 bit server program? That might account for the "format" errors.
