Description of problem (Responses are direct from customer):
Unable to Export and Import Machine
I am unable to export a virtual machine that was accidentally created in a 4.2 datacenter to a 4.1 datacenter. A mission critical VM was created in a 4.2 Beta with teh requirement to run in 4.1
Where are you experiencing the behavior? What environment?
Redhat 4.2 Beta exporting via Export Domain is able to mount to 4.1 Datacenter but is unable to display the contained VM but throws an OVF failure.
When does the behavior occur? Frequently? Repeatedly? At certain times?
It is consistent and complete. We can always reproduce this error and need to find a method to migrate this VM.
What information can you provide around timeframes and the business impact?
This is a mission critical VM that has to be migrated immediately. We need to find a method for migration. We need to determine a method of either doing a V2V to the 4.1 data-center or I need advise on the proper migration method.
If I am unable to export out of the datacenter. Is there a method to us Virt-V2V to migrate it to a 4.1 datacenter. I know 4.2 is not intended for production but one of the engineers did not. This was an error and I am looking for a potential migration path if possible.
Be able to export from 4.2 Beta into 4.1 GA environment
Was it reproduced?
if we ignore the VM configuration(that could be easily recreated) then the only issue is with disk(s). You can use image download/upload then to copy it to a different DC
Still, export/import should work too so indeed please reproduce and attach logs
The customer has reported that the issue was resolved and closed the case.
I suggest closing this bug too for now.
