Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 811527
[RFE]virt-p2v should support unattended operation to meet unsupervised conversion
Last modified: 2015-03-12 13:27:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Now virt-p2v does not support unattended operation, so we can not automatic to test virt-p2v cases.Currently, virt-p2v has a big amount over 400 cases and some of them cost 2~4 hours to finish, which waste too much time to execute them manually.
We highly suggestion DEV to implement these type of features with high priority.
Target: implement a feature to make virt-p2v auto-configured, meet unsupervised conversions
Here is the description of unattended operation from Matt's relevant document:
It should be possible to specify all options on the boot command line and have the conversion process start immediately. This will make performing multiple, similar conversions simpler and less error-prone
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This feature was a blocker of virt-p2v auto test
implement a feature to make virt-p2v auto-configured, meet unsupervised conversions
If it can get the settings from kernel command instead of only UI interactive, p2v will become much more efficient when customer has a lot of machines.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Since we are unable to provide this feature at this time,
it has been proposed for the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
As comment2 said, this feature is very useful for customer which has too much machines for p2v. Also it is very efficient to QE, as usually manually test virt-p2v cost a lot of time even not full test(over two weeks each round).
If we can do conversion automatically, which would save much time.
Please consider this bug in RHEL6.5.
New virt-p2v supports this, see:
I'm closing this bug:
- virt-p2v has been rewritten for RHEL 7.2
- Unofficial previews of the new version are available:
- If a similar bug occurs with the new version of virt-p2v,
please open a new bug against Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 / libguestfs
