Importing a VM

Josh Templeton


Good day!


I have a XenServer pool running XenServer 7.2 Enterprise.  The severs in the pool are Dell R710 with dual quad-core Intel Xeon X5650 CPUs.   I have exported a CentOS 7 VM into a XVA file.  I have installed XenServer 7.2 on an HP Compaq Elite 8300 CMT with 1 quad-core Intel Core i5-3570 CPU.  The export works with no issues, and it imports into the HP with no issue.  However, when i attempt to start it, i get the following message:


PCI: Warning: cannot find a gap in the 32bit address range

PCI: unassigned devices with 32bit resource registers may break!

PCI: Fatal: No config space access function found


Then the VM turns off.  Now on the Dell system with the original image, it shows those same there lines, but then CentOS starts loading.  I have also tired importing the export file back into the dell system, it shows those same three lines, then CentOS starts loading.  Both XenServers are running the same patches.  Any thoughts why on my I am unable to get CentOS to load on the HP system?

Good morning!


In looking at that link, if I drop the VM from 4GB to 3GB, the first two lines disapear.  However the line:


PCI: Fatal: No config space access function found


still shows up.


in looking at /etc/fstab on the two servers, only the label=root is different.  here is what is on each server:


New: LABEL=root-emdpoz

Old: LABEL=root-ghgkpl


The rest of the label lines all match.  I am not seeing anything in /etc/fstab that says: /dev/anything  But I am guessing it is just a label that is created upon install.  Here  is the full listing of /etc/fstab on my new server


LABEL=root-emdpoz    /         ext3     defaults   1  1
LABEL=swap-emdpoz          swap      swap   defaults   0  0
LABEL=logs-emdpoz    /var/log         ext3     defaults   0  2
/opt/xensource/packages/iso/XenCenter.iso   /var/xen/xc-install   iso9660   loop,ro   0  0
