P2V conversion may fail with Error 3101

New A friend and co-worker discovered an interesting fix for a failed SCVMM P2V attempt involving Windows 2000 SP4. We’ve seen this same type of issue when converting Windows 2000 systems for years, and WMI is often part of the issue. Mike has provided an article listing three WMI updates that overcome many of the challenges we have seen. In the first day of this article’s publishing we fixed two cases involving P2V of Windows 2000. I can’t suggest strongly enough that you read his post and apply the hotfixes. Thanks Mike! Great contribution!
