Redhat P2V problem
Posted on 2010-11-17
I just P2V a redhat 7.3 machine to ESX 4.1 server using cold clone CD.
P2V was successfull.
Here is my issue:
my original machine has drive assignments like below
hda: ST320011A, ATA DISK drive
hdb: WDC WD200BB-60CJA0, ATA DISK drive
hdd: ATAPI 48X CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache, DMA
As you can see i had two HDDs on IDE0,0 and IDE0,1
I had a cdrom at IDE1,1
After P2V esx shows my drives like below.
Hard Disk 1 - SCSI 0,0
Hard Disk 2 - SCSI 0,1
CDROM - IDE 0,0
So when I try to boot my virtual machine it thinks IDE0,0 is the first HDD and Kernel Panics as it is a cdrom instead
How can i tell ESX to treat Hard disk 1 as IDE0,0 and Hard disk 2 as IDE0,1
and cdrom as IDE 1,1 ?
Any alternate way in which i can boot this virtual machine successfully?
I can p2v again if need be
Also, when i P2V i used the default settings so the VM was using Bus Logic and i manually changed it to LSI Parallel
