Re: [Libguestfs] Another virt-p2v blew up

I just checked the versions on the conversion server:

[root Fedora16-64P2V ~]# rpm -qa | grep libguestfs
[root Fedora16-64P2V ~]#
[root Fedora16-64P2V ~]#
[root Fedora16-64P2V ~]# rpm -qa | grep v2v
[root Fedora16-64P2V ~]#

As it turns out, that source physical machine was upgraded in place from Windows 2000 several years ago.  We've also had problems using the approach with ntbackup and restore.  So tonight we're trying with Acronis Universal Restore.

Which version of virt-v2v and libguestfs is this?

libguestfs should detect \winnt as the %systemroot%.  You can check
by doing:

  virt-inspector2 Guest | grep -i systemroot

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
