Re: [virt-tools-list] what does virt-v2v check for in a multiboot os?



Ok, I had the same problem with a completely separate VM.  This one
was originally built on the ESX host, and the Recovery Console was
never installed on it.  There are two separate vmdk files representing
two separate hard disks.  I get the same problem with virt-v2v
thinking this is a multi-OS vm:

[root rhel6 testing]# guestfish --ro -a SR-VSAV01_1-flat.vmdk -a
SR-VSAV01-flat.vmdk

Welcome to guestfish, the libguestfs filesystem interactive shell for
editing virtual machine filesystems.

Type: 'help' for help with commands
      'quit' to quit the shell
