It's all good up to step 6.

Step 7 is a bug in virt-p2v, where it doesn't reveal the real error
message (see BZ# that I previously posted).  However you can try to
diagnose the real problem:

In the virt-p2v GUI, press Ctrl+Alt+F1.

This should give you a root shell.  If you need to log in, use root
with the password p2v

Then do:

  ssh root name-of-v2v-conversion-server

and fix any problem that may be stopping you from ssh-ing to the
conversion server.

Once you've fixed those, the 'test connection' button should work.
