thank you for the quick response.

Yes I can confirm that I'm also able to perform this through copying of the image but then you need to know the exact file name of the disk you need to overwrite.

Is there a way to see the file name also in the oVirt admin portal?

Best regards

Hi list,

finally I managed to install oVirt on my new server and so far it is really

The next step on my side it to migrate VMs from another server
(KVM/libvirtd/virt-manager) to oVirt.
I was trying to find something in the documentation but so far no luck.

Google was pointing me to tow options:

- virt-v2v
- import-to-ovirt.pl (script from Richard WM Jones)

Currently I'm trying to migrate a Win7 VM (with VirtIO) with import_to_ovirt
bzt I receive the following error message:
./import-to-ovirt.pl: no operating system was found on the disk

I'm executing the following command:
./import-to-ovirt.pl /path-to-image-file/disk.img hostname:/export-domain

Is anyone able to support me here?
As both systems are running KVM there should be a quite easy way to migrate
the VMs or not?
Adding Richard.

IIRC people managed to do that by merely creating a new vm and copying the
existing one over the new empty disk. No idea about details, you might want
to search the list archives.
