virt-v2v output with -v -x

Description of problem:

While trying to convert an OVA exported from VMware vSphere to libvirt using virt-v2v, I get the following error:

virt-v2v: error: inspection could not detect the source guest (or physical 

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

Base OS: 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus)
Source VM OS: CentOS 7
libguestfs: 1.32.2 (patched with https://github.com/libguestfs/libguestfs/commit/fd60be95091a1923e108f72caf251f5549eeccd0)

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Export CentOS using VMware ovftool
2. Execute virt-v2v command:

sudo virt-v2v -v -i ova fso-app-p01.ova -o libvirt -os projects -of qcow2

Actual results: See attached log.

Expected results: No failures; new domain created from source OVA.

Comment 1 Pino Toscano 2017-07-11 02:42:25 EDT
This happens because that version of libguestfs does not identifies correctly a separate /usr partition.

This was reported already as bug 1186935, and fixed in libguestfs >= 1.35.15.
