[Libguestfs] virt-v2v trouble converting Xen Centos 5.X to KVM Centos 6.3 or Fedora 17



Hi!  I'm trying to convert some Xen guests running Centos 5.8 to KVM on Centos 6.3.  Hopefully this is the right place to ask this question, if not, let me know and I'll go there instead!  :)

My setup:  Centos 5.8 Host running Xen with a Centos 5.8 guest, and I want to transfer this guest to a different Centos 6.3 host running KVM.  I am able to tweak the target server all I want, but the source server is not really upgradeable which is why I'm trying to do this in the first place.  :)

Command I am running:

virt-v2v -ic xen+ssh://root app1 bur sol -o libvirt -os vg5 --bridge br0 alan2

When I ran this on the Centos 6.3 target, the ssh transfer of the 20G disk image took about 10 mins and then I saw this error:

"febootstrap-supermin-helper: ext2: parent directory not found: File not found by ext2_lookup"  I did some searching and saw someone else had this problem on an ubuntu setup who guessed that febootstrap was below version.  Since I was able to wipe the target server all I wanted I jumped way ahead to Fedora 17 which had febootstrap-supermin-helper-3.18-1.fc17.x86_64 and libguestfs-1.18.6-3.fc17.x86_64.

So now on my new Fedora 17 target, I get a totally different error. It appears the transfer of the disk image goes fine (that's the 100% progress bar), but then I get a bunch of error messages I don't understand, and I check and the logical volume under the vg5 pool has been deleted once the script exits.

I re-ran the command setting LIBGUESTFS_TRACE=1 and LIBGUESTFS_DEBUG=1, and there is about 144K of output I that looks like an operating system booting up, examination of lots of directores in long format, and the section that has the error looks like this:

The script then exits and I have no idea what I should do next.  There is a 343M of new data created in /var/tmp/.guestfs-0 also, which I've cleaned up prior to each run.

Any suggestions on what I should try next?  Thanks again for any assistance!
