Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 855059
RFE: virt-p2v: display more information about network devices such as topology, bonding, etc.
Last modified: 2015-11-19 01:56:40 EST
Is it possible to display more information about the network devices such as which devices are bonded together or part of a bridge.
This would allow the user to more easily select the interfaces for conversion.
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.
Created attachment 1025393 [details]
New "Network interfaces" dialog
I don't believe it's possible to display information about bonding
because that would require knowledge from the operating system that
is being converted, which virt-p2v does not have access to.
However, I can display more useful information about the network
interface, including the MAC address and the Vendor, which should
make identifying them a bit easier.
I have modified the Network interface dialog to display this extra
information, and the result is shown in the attached screenshot.
Patch commited upstream:
Please PM ACK this. The bug has been fixed already.
Sorry, wrong NEEDINFO. Siddharth, please PM ACK this.
After launch virt-p2v from virt-p2v iso,there is detailed info shows under "Network Interfaces" as the screenshot shows in comment 4.
Refer to comment 7,move this bug to VERIFIED.
