When I try to use P2V with my physical server, I receive the following error:

VZAgent Error 425. Distribute agent to failed : connection : [1203] No network provider accepted the given network path.

I cannot connect by SMB to the physical server from the Virtuozzo node.


The most likely reason for the problem is that SMB admin share is closed on the physical server, and swagent, required for P2V migration, cannot be delivered to the physical server.

The second reason could be that Client for Microsoft Network is not installed or does not work properly on the node.


1. Enable admin share (C$) on the physical server by changing the “AutoShareServ” value to “1” under the following registry key:


2. Restart Server service:

net stop server &net start server

3. Enable and start Remote registry service.

On the Virtuozzo node, make sure that Client for Microsoft Network is installed and works properly. If not, try to reinstall it.
