Problem to convert ESX guest into the KVM
Hi , I'm testing RHEV v3 beta .
One of the tasks is to convert ESX guests ( v 4 and 5 ) into the KVM format within the RHEV-M .
1. When I’m trying to covert ESX guest ( v.4 ) into the RHEV
#virt-v2v -ic esx://10.45.2.130/?no_verify=1 -o rhev -osd rh6lab3:/extra/export2 --network lclients Rhel5.5-WEB-Rsync-Backup
I get this error :
"qemu: terminating on signal 15"
2. Although everything looks fine and I succeeded to import and boot converted guest within the RHEV I noticed that after the migration not all data present on the KVM guest .So, most of a data was under the /root on ESX guest is not found on KVM guest .
Full vrt-v2v putput :
# virt-v2v -ic esx://10.45.2.130/?no_verify=1 -o rhev -osd rh6lab3.il.nds.com:/extra/export2 --network lclients Rhel5.5-WEB-Rsync-Backup
PD RHEL 5 Image_PD RHEL 5 Image: 100% [================================================================]D 0h41m11s
qemu: terminating on signal 15 from pid 17463
virt-v2v: Rhel5.5-WEB-Rsync-Backup configured with virtio drivers
Any ideas ?
Update for the theread .
I upgraded virt-v2v and rhevmto the latest version :virt-v2v-0.8.3-5.el6 , rhevm-3.0.0_0001-51.el6
and still get this errors :
#virt-v2v -ic esx://10.45.7.51/?no_verify=1 -o rhev -osd rh6lab3:/extra/export2 --network lclients esxvm
I've asked Matt to look at this.
This is RHEL 6.something right? What version of libguestfs is it?
It would be very useful to see the output of the same command, but with the following environment variables set:
That will produce a lot of output so you may need to attach it as a file.
Is /root a separate partition?
What was the nature of the data corruption?
Is NFS involved here at any point?
I repeated V2V test with ESX vm with and without LVM
For ESX vm without LVM for / - v2v worked fine except that the esx vm's /dev/sda
wasn't converted to the /dev/vda - had to fix it maually in grub.conf .
When converted esx vm that failed earlier the problem raised again - kvm guest started but some data within /root is missing .
No , /root is under the / is a separate file system
No , neither NFS configs take place .
Data wasn't corrupted - it simply not found under the /root .It looks like after clean OS install .
How I may upload logs ?
the versions, and have full debug output.
Do have access to a webserver where you could upload the log files?
I think the best thing here is to join us on the upstream mailing list:
You can post to email@example.com with large debug files etc. and we can have a look at the problem.
Please make sure you put the version numbers of everything you are using when you post.
