Question

Hi, I have a problem importing an xva file to Xen.
I have tried xe vm-imort .... but I have not succeeded, it stops and keeps importing but never ends, unless I cancel.

I have verified the xva file with the xva_verify command and it gives me an error.
I have mounted a samba unit within xen to import the backup, I have tried from the CLI.
Also and tried with the tar -fv file.xva command and it ends up giving I / O error. And if i try copy to other disk the xva file, filed on 30%.
I'm afraid the file is damaged.

anybody know, any way to repair the xva file?

 

tks so much

Mike.

Hi Alex,

 

Sorry to hear about your issues with your XVA file.

Have a look at this tool:

https://github.com/eriklax/xva-img
 

You could also try converting the XVA file into a different format.

There is a couple of tools that can do that:

  • XenConvert - this has been deprecated a long time ago though and you can't find it on the Citrix website anymore
    You can still download copies here: https://eranier.webnode.com.br/subpaginas/xen-convert
  • qemu-img - this is part of KVM (open source hypervisor) - so you would first need to set up a Linux machine and install KVM/QEMU

Hope you are able to recover your file.

Best,

Koenraad

Is this XVA on a single disk that could have bad sectors? Since that format is compressed unless you

get a good copy I don't think you can recover it as you will have too much data loss to recover.

Yes is an single disk of storage backup.
Now im scanned the disk and found bad sectors =(. We are trying repair the disk....

Sounds to me as if the VM is corrupted. Is  there any way you can re-generate teh XVA file from the original VM?

We have replaced the server diks, because the disks are broken.

 

Through this problem we have discovered that our storage iomega has the disk with problems and that backup is bad. Now we are trying to recover the file :(.
