Linux P2V issue

Jump to solution

I went on P2V process these days, the working environment was Linux(CentOS 6.7), and the P2V process had proceeded online after all the service went off.

After P2V process, due to the Kernel Panic, I rebooted the system by ramdisk rebuild using mkinitrd.

But after booting the virtual machine successfully, apache configuration duplicates had added so the service didn’t come up.

So I deleted the duplicates, and the service operated normally.

I checked the physical server that there is only one configuration file, and the duplicates of the configuration file was generated in virtual machine.

Can the P2V process make the files that doesn’t exist before or change the settings inside?

I will wait for your reply.

Thank you.

Can you please spend some time in analyzing the client and server side logs , below are the location ,.

It must be the first step to start troubleshooting

VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.x and 6.0

To collect the client and agent logs from the Job view click Job > Export logs...

To collect the client and agent logs from the Task view click Task > Export logs...

To collect client logs from the file system of the computer that is running Converter:

C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\logs

To collect agent logs from the computer that is being converted:

C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Agent\logs

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client\logs

Note: For Linux, there are no client side logs on the source machine because they are stored on the server side.

Hello

Converter does change configuration files as part of the reconfiguration. These include fstab, GRUB configuration, modules configuration, SELINUX, network interfaces. initrd image is being rebuilt. However Apache configuration should not be affected.

Can you post which files have been changed and attach the log bundle?

Regards,

Plamen
