unable to detect hard disk on raid controller
Last modified: 2014-12-15 07:10:40 EST
Description of problem: p2v unable to detect raid disk controller based drives
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):0.9.7
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot p2v live cd on any HP server with standard smart array controller
all_block_devices: block devices:
all_block_devices: non-removable block devices:
No non-removable block devices (hard disks, etc.) could be found on this machine.
Discovery of /dev/cciss/c0d0 as a block device
/sys/block does have cciss!c0d0 in its listing
There is a new version (0.9.8) on the website which includes UNTESTED
support for HP Smart Array controllers (cciss).
Tested 0.9.8 on BL20p G3 and received the following error message:
mount '/dev/mapper/snapcciss_c0d0' /mnt/root
RHEL3u9 system attempting to be captured - will attached screenshot, dmesg output and virt-p2v.log as requested.

ErrorMessage screen shot
Tested with v0.9.9 that supports LVM snapshots and issue has been corrected. I can move systems configured for ext3 /dev/cciss/c0d0 partitions or those with LVM volumes on the /dev/cciss/c0d0.
virt-p2v has been rewritten. I'm reassigning this bug
to Matt Booth to make sure that the new virt-p2v will
work with /dev/cciss devices.
There is a new version of virt-p2v and virt-v2v:
