Basically, I boot windows in safe mode and remove vmware tools. In this case I was able to use old VM if there are issues with conversion. Of course you can remove vmware tools before migration. Linux VMs do not need the convertor. The procedure is much simpler: 1. Make sure you don't use

Hi Pavel, Just to clarify: I've read on the virt-v2v page that you should remove the VMware tools from the Windows VM before migration - for step 13 in your list, does that apply only to non-windows VMs? Cheers, Cam On Fri, Jun 17, 2016 at 10:54 AM, Cam Mac wrote: > Hi

I wasn't either and was beating my head against the wall trying to get it to work and finally found a post that mentioned it. In hindsight it makes sense because the vdsm account is what it runs under but nowhere in any document I've found from RH or oVirt on conversion does it mention

Cam, I did import vmware VMs, but it was not an easy procedure. Last time I did it, there were the following issues: * oVirt engine didn't support 32bit VMs. If you have a 32bit VM in vCenter, you are not able to see the list VMs to import. * There were issues if you have a cluster in vCenter.

Hi Brett, Thanks for the reply. Yes, I tried the GUI, and it failed (the original email is at: http://lists.ovirt.org/pipermail/users/2016-June/040298.html, which includes log files). I wasn't aware that virt-v2v doesn't like being run as root, so I will try it as user vdsm. I will try your other
