3.3.4. Converting a remote Xen virtual machine
virt-v2v -ic qemu+ssh://email@example.com/system -op pool --bridge bridge_name guest_name
vmhost.example.comis the host running the virtual machine,
poolis the local storage pool to hold the image, bridge_name is the name of a local network bridge to connect the converted virtual machine's network to, and guest_name is the name of the Xen virtual machine.
--networkparameter to connect to a locally managed network if your virtual machine only has a single network interface. If your virtual machine has multiple network interfaces, edit
/etc/virt-v2v.confto specify the network mapping for all interfaces.
virt-v2vwill attempt to install a new kernel during the conversion process. You can avoid this requirement by installing a regular kernel, which will not reference a hypervisor in its name, alongside the Xen kernel prior to conversion. You should not make this newly installed kernel your default kernel, because Xen will not boot it.
virt-v2vwill make it the default during conversion.
virt-v2vrequires that the image of the source virtual machine exists in a storage pool. If the image is not currently in a storage pool, you must create one. Contact Red Hat Support for assistance creating an appropriate storage pool.
