  1. The following errors are being reported every few minutes in the Cloud Infrastructure Log:

    18766   Nov-10-2015 00:10:02    The virtual machine or the source and destination servers do not comply with the migration requirements.                        Failed

  2. Additional errors could be found on PACI Instance Manager node in /var/log/IM/PACI-vm2vf.log:

Cause

Operation of copy OS Template to other virtualization node fails because of lack of diskspace in /vz partition on destination node.

Resolution

  1. Find corresponding error in /var/log/IM/PACI-vm2vf.log on PACI IM node. For example:

    2015-11-10 13:25:49,118 () DEBUG ReqIdSetter [RequestProcessor-24942] - Received CORBA request: #2589582 - copy_template_cb
    2016-11-00 13:25:49,118 (e40fd12b-7f1c-40f7-916c-2a39172f9549) INFO  LoggingProxy [RequestProcessor-24942] - invoked: register_callback(
      <Vm2VfCallback>
    ); reqId=1026052; corbaReqId=2589582.
    2016-03-30 21:46:49,118 () INFO  LoggingProxy [RequestProcessor-24942] - invoked: copy_template_cb(
      "10.39.87.217",
      "root",
      <hidden>,
      "10.39.87.218",
      "root",
      <hidden>,
      "windows-server-2008-x86_64",
      null,
      java.nio.DirectByteBuffer[pos=0 lim=32 cap=32]
    ); reqId=1026052; corbaReqId=2589582.
    

    In the first section of the logs you can see the source and destination servers which are being used the syntax is as following:

    copy_template_cb(
      "Source_Server_IP_Address",
      "Source_server_User_Name",
      <hidden>,
      "Destination_Server_IP_Address",
      "Destination_Server_User_Name",
      <hidden>,
      "Template_Name",
      null,
      java.nio.DirectByteBuffer[pos=0 lim=32 cap=32]
    );
    
  2. After gathering the Source and destination server address, log into the source node and check location and size of corresponding template:

    [root@node1 ~]# prlctl list -t
    UUID                                    DIST            T  NAME
    {9d23b523-a799-4305-8138-7e5b675480fd}  win-2008        VM windows-server-2008-x86_64
    [root@pcs5 ~]# du -sh /var/parallels/windows-server-2008-x86_64.pvm/
    19G     /var/parallels/windows-server-2008-x86_64.pvm/
    
  3. Check available disk space on destination node:

    [root@node2 ~]# df -h /var/parallels/
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/vg_pcs2-lv_root
                           24G   17G  5.7G  75% /
    
  4. In-order to fix this error message increase the disk space of the /vz partition on the destination server.
