VMWare converter fails physical linux clone at /var partition

I was having issues cloning a running physical lunux system using VMWare’s vCenter Converter Standalone 5.0.0 app. It continually would fail (timeout) while trying to clone the /var partition. This URL held the answer to this particular problem:

FIX:
1. ls -lh /var/log
2. look at the LASTLOG file, it will show as 1.2T
3. cd /var/log
4. rm lastlog
5. touch lastlog
