Description of Problem:
Window xp and 2003 guest with preallocated disk can not boot when import to FC and ISCSI storage after converted using virt-v2v
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Prepare a xen hvm window 2003 guest with preallocated/raw disk.
2.Use virt-v2v to convert a guest to rhevm.
# virt-v2v -ic xen+ssh://10.66.72.123 -o rhev -os 10.66.90.115:/vol/v2v_auto/auto_export -n rhevm xen-hvm-win2003-i386
xen-hvm-win2003-i386-2.img: 100% [=====================================================================]D 0h02m15s
virt-v2v: xen-hvm-win2003-i386 configured with virtio drivers.
3.Import the guest to FC and ISCSI storage.
4.Boot the guest,it hangs,details see the screenshot.
5.Shutdown the guest,check the vdsm log,the error messages printed:
Thread-18::ERROR::2012-03-26 09:58:59,097::guestIF::246::vm.Vm::(run) vmId=`afafc5b9-b0ee-4aee-8492-6b59d09ba23c`::Run exception: None
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/vdsm/guestIF.py", line 238, in run
File "/usr/share/vdsm/guestIF.py", line 214, in _readLine
File "/usr/share/vdsm/guestIF.py", line 200, in _readBuffer
error: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer
When boot the guest in FC and ISCSI storage,it will hang.
The guest should boot successfully in FC and ISCSI storage.
1.The guest can boot successfully in NFS storage,Other windows guest like win7 with preallocated/raw disk can boot in FC and ISCSI.
2.Reinstall the guest can not resolve this issue,while reinstall guest with sparse disk,it can boot successfully.
3.When use parameter -oa and -of to designate the type of disk,then the guest can boot successfully.
# virt-v2v -ic xen+ssh://10.66.72.123 -o rhev -os 10.66.90.115:/vol/v2v_auto/auto_export -n rhevm xen-hvm-win2003-i386 -of qcow2 -oa sparse -on xen-hvm-win2003-i386-test

virt-v2v: xen-hvm-win2003-i386-test configured with virtio drivers.
4.The ovf file in export domain and iscsi storage are attached.
5.Until now,I met the issue with guests:xen-hvm-winxp-i386,xen-hvm-win2003-i386,kvm-win2003-i386.
