RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Richard W.M. Jones 2014-10-08 11:10:16 UTC
Description of problem:

Upstream discussion:

If you export a guest which has two or more disks to RHEV, only
one disk shows up after importing it into RHEV.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

virt-v2v 1.27.58

How reproducible:

100% (reproduced by two independent people)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a guest which has two disks.
2. Convert and export it to RHEV, eg:
   virt-v2v guest-2disks -o rhev -os server:/esd
3. Import the disk from the Export Storage Domain into RHEV.

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-10-08 11:42:04 UTC
Diffing the old and new virt-v2v code, I noticed that we didn't
add a <rasd:Caption/> field for the disk.  This is fixed in:


I don't know if this will fix the current bug - still testing.

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-10-08 14:26:04 UTC
So it turned out to be a bit of an f-up, but I seem to have fixed
it.  You have to use one subdirectory of images/ per disk, not one
subdirectory per guest containing all the disks.

The commits are:


Fix will be included in virt-v2v >= 1.27.60.

Tested with:

1.Use virt-v2v to convert a guest with 2 disks to rhev.

virt-v2v: warning: cannot write files to the NFS server as 36:36, even 
though we appear to be running as root. This probably means the NFS client 
or idmapd is not configured properly.

You will have to chown the files that virt-v2v creates after the run, 
otherwise RHEV-M will not be able to import the VM.
