Just want to share my latest experience fixing one of p2v VM done by my customer. The guest OS is a redhat 5.3 64bit with xen kernel. Since converter 5 now able to preserve LVM volume, nothing much we have to worry about other than mptscsih driver. Well, for the second time below command successfully fixed the “kernel panic” due to driver issue upon the completion of p2v.
$new-kernel-pkg –mkinitrd –depmod –install 2.6.18-128.el5
Of course, the above command will replace your existing xen kernel but the good things is, you will now able to power on your VM like usual.

The command above also able to replace the existing initrd-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5xen.img with the new one “initrd-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5xen.img”. Then you can reboot your existing xen kernel without need to modify the existing grub.conf. But make sure to modify root=/dev parameter to /dev/sdX if you are no longer use the LVM.No comments
Well, although it is just a draft, so many ah bengs out there felt uneasy with the idea of BCPM drafted by MOSTI. For me, if this is going to raise my stake, professionalism of I.T industry in Malaysia, why not! In the real world, every one have to accept, if not many, there were some Gov critical project’s been done before by this ah bengs. The quality is the main concerns here and their dirty shits are every where. And you know what… those qualified professionals normally become a scape goats for this ah bengs when problem happened… Am sick of this..No comments
