Tried P2V for the first time on a RH3u9 server with LVM partitions. The VM image was created successfully.
Got the following error when I tried to start the VM: Activating logical volumes vgchange -- no volume groups found Mounting root filesystem mount: error 2 mounting ext3 pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2 umount /initrd/proc failed: 2 Freeing unused kernel memory:228 freed Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
Is this an LVM issue or a RH3 issue?
Any ideas or fixes?
Excerpts prior thread,
"Prior to starting the migrated VM you will have to update "grub.conf" and "device.map". I also find it useful to clear out the "blkid.tab" cache. Rebuilding "initrd" is also recommended." P2V
"If the legacy system uses LVM for block devices then "ssh | tar" method will migrate to simple filesystem. There is no need for LVM on a VM."
