[Libguestfs] uninstall vmware tools on v2v to kvm?



Hi,

I have tested the windows v2v from esx to kvm with vmware-tools installed on the guest.

 

There is an issue, a message on first login after boot that tell the user that one or more

services failed to start. In the system event log there are 3 errors. Two of them are tool

services and one is the parallel port driver service.

 

Disabling the services (setting start mode 4 in the registry) solved the issue.

 

Running the tools uninstaller failed with a message saying it will not uninstall if it’s not

running on VMware hypervisor.

 

Looking at the guest registry I have found 8 VMware services, I think that uninstalling the tools

entirely might be too intrusive, If someone is really bothered by some extra files on the file

system they can uninstall on the original esx.

 

I think we should, disable all the tools services on the v2v scripts using the windows converter

and hivex.

 

If this sounds like the correct solution I’ll try to write it.

Amos
