Hi,

I am experiencing a failure running virt-v2v to convert a Linux guest on
an ESX host to a RedHat KVM hypervisor. The output with the failure
follows. Any help/guidance is appreciated.

[root storage-024 ~]# virt-v2v -ic esx://<ip address>/?no_verify=1 -op

virt-v2v: Unable to find any valid modprobe configuration

Does the guest contain any of /etc/conf.modules, /etc/modules.conf,
/etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modprobe.d/? What distribution of Linux is
the guest?

Ignore that question. I can see from the output that it's "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)", and that the problem is caused by incorrect mounting of /boot as /.

I'm struggling to find the precise patch right now, but I'm convinced we've fixed this bug. It could have been in either libguestfs or virt-v2v. My memory is failing me. Can you please try again using either the recently released RHEL 6.2, or F16?

Thanks,

Matt
