Re: [fedora-virt] Re: virt-p2v



Hi David,

Well, my / is 25G however the image that gets produced is 400G.

The 400G is that actual size of my entire disk but I only have a 25G partition defined, the rest of the drive is blank other then for a small swap partition.

I've used virt-p2v many times with great success.

However I have an issue.

I've always converted hosts having small disks of around 35G over to
domUs but have an issue were my current host in need of being
virtualized has a physical disk of 400G but its / partition is only 35G, the rest of the drive is unallocated/unpartitioned and therefore unused.
[...]
I obviously don't want to migrate the entire 400G disk as it only has a
35G root partition (ext3, no LVMs in this case).

Oh dear, this is a problem :-(

The answer unfortunately is that virt-p2v currently doesn't support
this - we can only migrate whole block devices.

As I understand Brian, the block device is whatever / is mounted on, a
25G partition, and it shouldn't matter how big the actual disk is
containing the partition.

David
