I'm using VMware vCenter Converter Standalone version=4.0.1, build=build-161434 to hot clone the linux partition on my laptop. It has a partition with Windows Xp pro and another with Opensuse 11.0. Everytime I try to do this, VMware vCenter Converter gives an error saying :

FAILED: A general system error occurred: Remote server closed connection after 0 response bytes read

I found this inside the error log, but I'm unable to find the issue why its not able to visualize the linux partition.
