Windows 2016 VM disk device - IDE only


(Alex W) #1

Hello,

Our VMware guys converted a VMDK Windows 2016 Server for us following this document until step #4:http://docs.platform9.com/support/migrate-a-windows-vm-from-vsphere-to-kvm”. This implies using “virtio-win-0.1.141.iso” for the VirIO drivers installation.
After that I converted it to QCOW2 and registered into OpenNebula

Well, when instantiating a VM, the only way I can make it boot is setting DEV_PREVIX to “hd”. Anything else fails with the VM not finding its boot device. (DRIVER is been always set to qcow2, by the way.)

According to my readings, I was expecting that “vd” would be the way to go…
Does it mean that something is missing after the VirtIO drivers were installed? Or, in fact, I am missing something on the image definition or VM template?

When looking at a booted VM, Device Manager shows these entries under Storage controllers:
(working) Microsoft Storage Spaces Controllers
(warning sign) Red Hat VirtIO SCSI controller
(warning sign) Red Hat VirtIO SCSI pass-through controller

Our OpenNebula 5.4.6 is running on Ubuntu 16.04.

Below follows the VM template and image definition from a running VM.

Any help would be really appreciated…

Regards,

Alex
