[Libguestfs] virt-v2v - Unable to authenticate to vCenter as DOMAIN\user



Hi,

I am encountering an issue with virt-v2v where I need to authenticate to the vCenter as DOMAIN\user.

I have tried the following with the resulting errors:

1. 'virt-v2v -v -x -ic 'vpx://vcenter/Datacenter/cluster_name/esx_server?no_verify=1' vm_name -o local -of raw -os /tmp'
	- prompted for username password
	- entered 'DOMAIN\User' as username
	- successfully retrieves libvirt xml
	- errors with 'virt-v2v: error: vcenter: incorrect username or password.'

2. virt-v2v -v -x -ic 'vpx://DOMAIN\user vcenter/Datacenter/cluster_name/esx_server?no_verify=1' vm_name -o local -of raw -os /tmp
	- errors immediately with virt-v2v: error: could not parse '-ic 
	vpx://DOMAIN\user vcenter/Datacenter/cluster_name/esx_server?no_verify=1'. 
 	Original error message was: parse_uri: unable to parse URI

What is the correct syntax for entering the authenticating user as 'DOMAIN\user' for virt-v2v?

Thanks,

Ben.
