MondoRescue -- Enabe virtio drivers ?

I am trying to restore a physical Linux server to a KVM (Redhat) virtual machine. The OS disk is /dev/vda (virtio).

Mondorestore does not seem to see my virtio disk.

I erckon this is due to the virtio drivers not being part of mondoarchive/mondorestore/mindi scheme?

So how do I?

I can thnk f changing the disk to type IDE (/dev/hda) but....


Thanks.

Re: MondoRescue -- Enabe virtio drivers ?

I'd recommend to open a bug report on http://trac.mondorescue.org for an ER concerning this.

Adding the virtio in rev 2678 was easy, but may not be sufficient, so I'd like you to add a detailed log file of mindi execution in your conf to the ER so that I can see if something else needs to be done.

You can use the FORCE_MOD variable to add virtio support on your side in between, and read Lester Wade's excellent doc on P2V with MondoRescue on the web site http://www.mondorescue.org/docs/p2v.pdf as it should give you the required hints to perform such a migration.

HTH,
Bruno.

Looks like you've already requested it sir.

Many thanks.

It sure will make P2V on KVM using virtio a lot eaier...
