Description Matthew Booth 2010-05-26 12:40:50 UTC
Description of problem:
When converting a Windows guest, if dependencies specified in the config file are not found the code dies untidily:

[root@t500 virt-v2v]# ./v2v/run-v2v-locally -f v2v/virt-v2v.conf -ic qemu+ssh://root@blue.rhev.marston/system -o rhev -osd blue:/export/export winxp-minimal
root@blue.rhev.marston's password: 
root@blue.rhev.marston's password: 
cp: cp: cannot stat `/sysroot/transferECnJPK/windows/xp/i386/viostor.sys': No such file or directory at /home/mbooth/src/virt-v2v/blib/lib/Sys/VirtV2V/Converter/Windows.pm line 359.

It should do the same as the Linux converter, which is to attempt to determine all missing dependencies at once and report them in a single error message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-v2v-0.6.0-1.el5

Comment 2 Matthew Booth 2010-06-07 12:39:57 UTC
Fixed in 0.6.0-3.el5

Comment 3 Rita Wu 2010-06-08 10:45:10 UTC
Verified on virt-v2v-0.6.0-3.el5 + v2v-libvirt-0.8.1-1.el5

Now it will point the installation failed reason in a single error msg when missing deps.
