Re: [Libguestfs] Trying to use virt-p2v

Oh man, so close!

[root f14ptov ~]# yum list available | grep p2v
rubygem-virt-p2v.noarch                   0.8.1-2.fc14
rubygem-virt-p2v-doc.noarch               0.8.1-2.fc14
virt-p2v-image-builder.noarch             0.8.1-2.fc14
[root f14ptov ~]#

So is rubygem-virt-p2v the piece I'm missing?

The conversion server has to be running virt-p2v-server (which is part
the virt-p2v package on Fedora). So the same system that you made the
virt-p2v-image on will be your conversion server. RHEL 6.1 doesn't yet
support virt-p2v, that won't be added until 6.2 at the earliest. On the
virt-p2v conversion server, you need to configure a virt-v2v.conf file
the same way you would if you were doing a v2v conversion.

OK.  I changed the subject line so it fits in with the post I did a few
minutes ago to the list. 

I did my virt-p2v-image-builder on June 28, version virt-p2v 0.8.1
devel.20110628025409.  You just released virt-v2v 0.8.3 and I can go
grab that and install it on my Fedora 14 VM.  It looks like my virt-P2v
CD that I burned 2 months ago is still current.  

But what I still don't get is, how do I set up the conversion server?
This is part of what I tried earlier today and it blows up with a
bizarre error.  I'm guessing I want ssh:// but I haven't found any

Let's keep this on the upstream mailing list so that
discussion benefits everyone.

I'm not sure how compatible the protocol was between an old version of
the ISO and current versions.  Matt will know in detail.

However I just pushed virt-p2v-image-builder to F14 quite recently.
The version in *F16* is known to be broken, but the version in F14 is
worth trying ...
