Description Matthew Booth 2010-05-20 09:39:10 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #594010 +++

Created an attachment (id=415380)

Description of problem:
The virt-v2v.conf is lower than the guest, so the guest is downgraded to a lower version of kernel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In guest: rhn_register to register rhn
2. convert the guest registered rhn 
 #virt-v2v -f virt-v2v.conf -i libvirtxml -o rhev -osd nfs:/export domain_xml
Actual results:
the guest is still installed the kernel specified in virt-v2v.conf although it is registered rhn.

Expected results:
the guest registered rhn should 

Additional info:
Convert the guest without registering rhn, I'll get the error message:
virt-v2v -f /etc/virt-v2v.conf -i libvirtxml -o rhev -osd nfs:/export /tmp/xen-RHEL-4.8-32-pv.raw.xml
virt-v2v: Failed to install packages using up2date. Error message was: command:  at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Sys/VirtV2V/GuestOS/RedHat.pm line 773.

Please include the yum.log or up2date log so we can see if the update is successful.

Could you please include LIBGUESTFS_TRACE=1 output for the RHEL 4 failure?

It's unclear to me why this was cloned.  It looks like a straight
dupe of 594010, just that it happens to affect a different guest
Comment 5 Matthew Booth 2010-05-25 11:14:43 EDT
That wasn't clear at the time I cloned it :)

However, it can be closed now.
