Hello,

 

I’m facing this issue migrating a Windows VM from vCenter 5.5 to AHV 5.20 with Move 4.2.0.

 

Migration Status “Failed” with Reader Client error: context deadline exceeded error.

 

also in logs I found this errors:

in srcagent.log

What I would do is prepare the machine manually (install the tools via the provided scripts in move). Then shutdown the machine and migrate with move.
