    VMWare / OLVM vpx driver not part of Libvirt

    GregoryG.

      Hello,

       

      OLVM VMware migration is said to be in tech preview from the documentation. We've installed oVirt 4.2 and when we try to import it from the administration console we get the error saying the vpx driver is not part of libvirt. see the message below.

      • Is it expected ? Is there a workaround ?
      • Is there a recommended way to migrate VM from VMWare for now ?
