Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 610875
virt-v2v fails when executed with umask 077
Last modified: 2011-01-13 13:28:42 EST
Description of problem:
# rm /var/lib/virt-v2v/transfer.iso
# umask 0077
# virt-v2v -ic esx://yellow.rhev.marston/?no_verify=1 -o rhev -osd blue:/nfs/export --network rhevm RHEL3-32
qemu: could not open disk image /var/lib/virt-v2v/transfer.iso
child process died unexpectedly at /usr/bin/virt-v2v line 483.
The reason for this is that virt-v2v creates transfer.iso with permissions 600, owned by root:root. When writing to RHEV, the libguestfs appliance is launched as 36:36, which doesn't have permissions to read this file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This is already upstream.
Verified with virt-v2v-0.6.3-2.el5
3.virt-v2v -ic xen+ssh://10.66.72.123 -o rhev -osd 10.66.90.115:/vol/v2vrwu1/xen_export rhel6-32b-pv-raw-intel
virt-v2v: rhel6-32b-pv-raw-intel configured with virtio drivers
Verification is passed.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Priviously, the conversion process failed if virt-v2v was run from a shell with a umask more restrictive than 0022. This update resolves this issue.
