When trying to P2V a physical server, you might get the following error message within your VMware vCenter Converter Standalone:
“The session is not authenticated”
To fix this problem, go into your task manager and kill all the pending VMware converter processes that are currently running.
If this should not work, other solutions can be applied:
- Verify that servers are synchronized
- Restart the VMware Converter service
- Restart the Virtual Center Server
