The log show a working vm, so it does not help much.

I think that the template you copied from the nfs domain to the block domain is
corrupted, or the volume metadata are incorrect.

If I understand this correctly, this started when Fernando could not copy the vm
disk to the block storage, and I guess the issue was that the template
was missing
on that storage domain. I assume that he copied the template to the
block storage
domain by opening the templates tab, selecting the template, and choosing copy
from the menu.

Lets compare the template on both nfs and block storage domain.

1. Find the template on the nfs storage domain, using the image uuid in engine.

It should be at

    /rhev/data-center/mnt/server:_path/domain-uuid/images/image-uuid/volume-uuid

2. Please share the output of:

    cat /path/to/volume.meta
    qemu-img info /path/to/volume
    qemu-img check /path/to/volume

4. Find the template on the block storage domain

You should have an lv using the same volume uuid and the image-uuid
should be in the lv tag.

Find it using:

    lvs -o vg_name,lv_name,tags | grep volume-uuid

5. Activate the lv

    lvchange -ay vg_name/lv_name

6. Share the output of

    qemu-img info /dev/vg_name/lv_name
    qemu-img check /dev/vg_name/lv_name

7. Deactivate the lv

    lvchange -an vg_name/lv_name

8. Find the lv metadata

The metadata is stored in /dev/vg_name/metadata. To find the correct block,
find the tag named MD_N in the lv tags you found in step 4

The block we need is located at offset N from start of volume.

9. Share the output of:

    dd if=/dev/vg_name/metadata bs=512 skip=N count=1 iflag=direct

The output of this command should show the image-uuid.
