OK the Windows "argument list too long" thing should be fixed
by hivex-1.3.10-5.7.el7 which is in the usual place.


It's a real pleasure to start a working day and see that a yum upgrade
displays some fresh packages just related to our issues :)

Thank you Richard.

But as usual, I won't be able to test them on the real server before
tonight (production server).
For your information, when this conversion will run smoothly, I will
have lots of other servers to convert, so your work will get intensively
tested and very appreciated.

Richard, Matthew et al,

I'm extremely glad to announce that last night, _we_ (you and I) were finally able to complete a conversion of this tricky windows 2003 server.

When completed, the import into oVirt went fine, but booting lead to a BSOD, which I corrected by merging mergeide.reg into the source machine and starting the whole process again. Then I fine tuned it by installing the dedicated virt drivers (virtio, net, scsi) and it eventually worked.

I guess the success key was that very last release of the packages coming from the libguestfs-RHEL-7.1-preview.repo repo :

[root serv-p2v-adm1 etc]# tail -8 /var/log/yum.log

For me, it has been more than a month of struggle, doc reading, testing, and way too many failures; but thanks to the libguestfs team, I succeeded. So I'd like to express my sincere thanks to Richard and Matthew for your support and professionalism.

As I explained it this long thread, I will have many more machines to convert, so they may be parts I may wish to see unsharpened (iptables concerns, sshd_config, livecd via pxeboot), but I know now that the code is correct and the pieces are fitting.

Once again, thank you gentlemen.

Nicolas Ecarnot
