Description Gunther Schlegel 2010-08-11 14:19:38 UTC
Description of problem:

When installing a new kernel, grubby will only activate it if the package matches the DEFAULTKERNEL definition in /etc/sysconfig/kernel.

The default kernel on a paravirtualized XEN-VM is "kernel-xen".
The default kernel on a KVM-VM is "kernel".

virt-v2v does change the installed kernel and updates the grub configuration, but does not update /etc/sysconfig/kernel accordingly. Therefore updated kernel are not activated by default.

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

How reproducible:
Migrate a paravirtualized VM from XEN to RHEV / KVM.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
/etc/sysconfig/kernel contains "DEFAULTKERNEL=kernel-xen"

Expected results:
/etc/sysconfig/kernel contains "DEFAULTKERNEL=kernel"

I was so sure that we did this already, but I have
just checked the upstream code and this file is not
