Comment 2 Matthew Booth 2010-07-19 04:55:42 EDT
This is still possible, because the host may have been upgraded in place from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6.
Comment 3 Rita Wu 2010-07-19 06:01:32 EDT
Oh, maybe I let you misunderstand. My point is we cannot convert Xen guests via running  'virt-v2v -ic xen:///localhost -op pool --bridge brname vm-name', because there is no Xen kernel in RHEL6. (also xen:///localhost should be xen:/// or xen:///system )
Comment 4 Matthew Booth 2010-07-19 06:15:09 EDT
Ah, yes. I'd forgotten that was in there.

I think the section needs to stay because we still want to support upgrading from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6. However, there is no need to document the case where the Xen hypervisor is running as this isn't possible in RHEL 6 as you say.
Comment 5 Christopher Curran 2010-07-19 21:04:39 EDT
David, can you fix this bug for RHEL and RHEV?

Comment 6 David Jorm 2010-07-20 02:52:30 EDT
I have removed the xen:///localhost example from the RHEL 6 guide only. Fixed in build:

xen:/// removed, section remains :)
