So I have been looking at how to move windows 2008 and R2 servers from
vmware esxi4 over to ovirt. I moved my Linux servers over with clonezilla.
But windows needs a sysprep and generalize not to mention uninstalling
vmtools and vmware drivers. I have done this. I then use clonezilla to
put the image onto a thinprovisioned drive on ovirt. It starts to boot
then blue screen of death. Am I missing something other than syspreping
the windows machine and uninstalling the vmware drivers? Also is there a
P.S. Also I have ovirt up in a production envirenment and is running rock
solid for the past month great job guys!

I was reading on deploying spice on ovirt here -
There is specific line there that says -
A Linux client machine with spice client and spice xpi installed (packages
spice-client and spice-xpi in Fedora/RHEL). It's not possible to connect to
a guest from Windows client through Ovirt yet.
Is above still valid?
Can I use spice client on windows and connect to guest OS on KVM-ovirt?
Hi, got few basic Qs in my mind. Appreciate a response.
1) Why is it that the data domains must be of the same type as that of
datacentre ? What is the goal behind having
this constraint ? It seems useful to have a datacentre w/o having any
storage restrictions.. i should be able to add
hosts w/o worrying abt the storage types... why is it not so... looking
to understand the reason behind this design
2) If i have a set of host systems all connected to shared FC storage,
is there a way for me to configure LUNs
exclusively for each host, meaning have ability to control what LUN each
hosts sees ? Can this be done using oVirt today ? My understanding is
that this cannot be done via ovirt, zoning of LUNs to host has to be
done separately and not via ovirt, is that correct ?
3) If i have to create and run 1000 VMs (say), how can i automate that
using ovirt, what is the best way to do that ?
I used google chrome 17, Mozilla firefox and Knoquerer browser to access
the ovirt-manager, but all of them say that browser is not supported. Can
anybody help with the information about the supported browsers for oVirt
Thanks in advance :)
I have serveral "old" KVM virtual images, all off them using virtio
for networking and disks. Trying to import these into my EXPORT
datastore ends up with an error:
virt-v2v -i libvirt -o rhev -os 10.0.0.3:/nfs/export -n br0 PXE5-test
PXE5.img: 100% [=====================================================]
virt-v2v: WARNING: Unable to convert this guest operating system. Its
storage will be transfered and a domain created for it, but it may not
operate correctly without manual reconfiguration. The domain will present
all storage devices as ide, all network interfaces as rtl8139 and the host
virt-v2v: PXE5-test configured without virtio drivers.
How can I avoid these errors?
How can I fix this error.
After restoring the image, I am able to change the network interface
from rtl8139 to Virtio. However; I cannot change the disk. In the
admin console going to Virtual Machines --> <virtual machine> -->
Virtual Disks --> <disk> --> Edit gives a menu, but the only option I
can change is "is bootable". Options like "Interface" are grey and
cannot be modified.
