Default virt-p2v and linux software raid.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello,

I was in the process of moving a server using virt-p2v this evening,
when I came across the issue described at:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/et-mgmt-tools/2008-February/msg00037.html
https://www.redhat.com/archives/et-mgmt-tools/2008-February/msg00038.html
https://www.redhat.com/archives/et-mgmt-tools/2008-February/msg00039.html
https://www.redhat.com/archives/et-mgmt-tools/2008-February/msg00040.html

I was wondering if there is any progress on getting linux software raid
support. I'm not really qualified to help with patches, but I'd be more
than happy to test any patches to get this functionality in. It appears
I have a similar setup where I have three physical drives, three
identical partitions in a software RAID-1 (/boot), three identical
partitions for swap, and three identical partitions in a software RAID-5
(/). And of course it bails out because it doesn't understand the
software raid type. If there is a bug, or anything I can do to help on
this front, please let me know, as this has thrown a bit of a
monkey-wrench into a migration plan that I had, but could not test until
now.

Thanks!
Brandon

Sorry I wasn't concentrating very hard on this list for the past
couple of weeks.

virt-p2v doesn't understand RAID devices at all. There's no real
limitation here, it's just that you're the first person who has asked
about it.

Can you open a bug report, and also send the virt-p2v.log file from
your attempted installation.

Rich.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines. Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
