Unable to query live linux source machine.

This error is occurd while performing v2v conversion "Unable to query live linux source machine."

Ubuntu Os 16.04 is supported and vcenter converter version is 6.2

In worker logs i am finding this error vmware-converter-worker[00532] [Originator@6876 sub=Default] No disks for volume with id '/dev/sda1' and label ''

I am able to do ssh from converter standalone machine.

No firewall in between

DNS entries are made properly.

can anyone help me with resolving this issue?

when i try to do conversion in power off state it gives me error as "a file i/o error has occurred while accessing "

Hi,

According to the log "/dev/sda1" is mounted both as "/" and as "/var/lib/docker/aufs". Converter has a problem when a devices is mounter more than once (VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 6.2.0.1 Release Notes look for "Converter cannot query Linux source when a volume is mounted more than once").

I suggest you unmount the aufs mount (can't convert w/o root) and retry the conversion. Once it starts, you can remount it w/o waiting for it to finish.

HTH,

Plamen
