Re: [ovirt-users] Migrate VirtualBox Vm into

2017-05-12 Thread Staniforth, Paul
Hi Gajendra,

  virt-v2v didn't support Debian/Ubuntu guests, it is 
apparently in a later version that is due to be included in RHEL/Centos 7.4


What I did to get a Metasploitable2 image into oVirt was.




1. convert vmdk disk

   qemu-img convert -f vmdk Metasploitable.vmdk -O raw Metasploitable.img

2. Find size of disk 8GB in this case

qemu-img info Metasploitable.img

3. Create VM O/S Linux with disk of that size and of interface type IDE thin 
provision

4.  In engine in the DATA_DOMAIN record the id of the disk just created

5. in the DATA_DOMAIN on one the hosts/nodes go to the images directory
  e.g. mount_point/UUID/images

6. cd to directory of the id of the disk recorded at step 5 (also probably last 
directory created)
 there should be 3 files and the one without an extension should be 8GB
 they should all start with the same UUID in this case  
1805e3a4-0697-4c0a-8dfb-0c0011490bd2

7. dd if=/path/Metasploitable.img  of=1805e3a4-0697-4c0a-8dfb-0c0011490bd2 bs=4M

8.  Boot VM.

It may be easier converting the disk and creating a new VM with it or seeing if 
Fedora has a more modern virt-v2v

Regards,
   Paul S.

Subject: [ovirt-users] Migrate VirtualBox Vm into


Hi,


I am running a ovirt engine and ovirt host on a single machine for testing 
purpose. I trying to convert and move Debian virtualbox vm which is created 
using vagrant into ovirt engine as template.


I tried to convert using virt-v2v as http://libguestfs.org/virt-v2v.1.html. 
However, I get error as (Debian/ Linux cannot be converted).


I have exported the vm from virtualbox and have the image as .ova. Is there any 
way to migrate?


Thanks

It is, now.

not in el7 yet, so you need to get it from libguestfs.org

Thanks,

Yes, virt-v2v only supports a limited number of operating systems, 
Debian is just not supported.



I have exported the vm from virtualbox and have the image as .ova. Is
there any way to migrate?


The only way I know of is to convert/migrate the harddisk of your guest 
machine and attach it to a newly created VM.


The necessary tools are "VBoxManage clonemedium ..." and qemu-img(1) for 
example.
