Doc Text:
In order to import VMs from Xen via RHEL passwordless SSH access has to be enabled between VDSM host and Xen. The following steps must be taken under vdsm user in the VDSM host that will perform the import of VMs: 1. Generate ssh keys for vdsm user: $ sudo -u vdsm ssh-keygen 2. Login to the Xen server via ssh in order to exchange keys with the Xen host: $ sudo -u vdsm ssh root@xenhost 3. Transfer public key to allow the access to Xen host: $ sudo -u vdsm ssh-copy-id root@xenhost oVirt is using virt-v2v to import the VMs from Xen servers, for more information on xen+ssh via virt-v2v reffer to http://libguestfs.org/virt-v2v.1.html under the "INPUT FROM RHEL 5 XEN" section. Example of a valid Xen URI: xen+ssh://root@xen.example.com

Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2016-02-01 04:41:56 EST
Bug tickets must have version flags set prior to targeting them to a release. Please ask maintainer to set the correct version flags and only then set the target milestone.
Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2016-02-01 04:41:56 EST
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.
