Re: [et-mgmt-tools] usage advice



Hi Stephan,

Thanks for the post and my mistake, I am using the virt-p2v tool that I thought this list was for. I didn't realize its for many tools.

So when I use it, it not only does my only partition on the hd, but the entire 400G disk.

Just to clarify, I only have 1 partition on the drive which is 35G, the rest of the drive is unused and unpartitioned but virt-p2v will try to make a domU file of 400G and not just 35G.

Any ideas?

- Brian

I obviously don't want to migrate the entire 500G disk as it only has
a 35G root partition (ext3, no LVMs in this case).

How about taking a backup of everything, possibly using a hard drive
cloning tool, then using the gparted live cd to resize the partitions? I guess it's not without risk, but to be honest, it will probably work - it has never failed for me so far. It isn't my data though, so easy for me to
say! ;-) The live cd / usb image can be downloaded from here:

While we're on the subject, I've only ever used this mailing list to talk about libvirt. What tool are you using to virtualise your existing physical
servers? It's an area I want to start looking into in the fairly near
future too.

Best regards,


Stephan
