Just using vmware player is to proof out the concept until the rest of the hardware arrives.

It will be XCP on bare metal(8GB ECC Ram), running XVP guest, Solaris based guest which will control 10TB under ZFS and a general purpose CentOS based guest.

I would not expect XCP to behave any different between bare metal and running in a vm, if that is the cause of my issue.

I'm trying to import the xvpappliance into XCP but the import cmds never
returns, XCP is currently installed in vmware player.

The import cmd:
       xe vm-import filename=/mnt/nfs/xvpappliance-1.9.1-1.xva

"/mnt/nfs" is a mounted nfs share exposed by WIN2008 R2, in which the
storage repository is also created.
When the import starts I see it create a
file(f5238e75-5ab2-4c68-a8d5-543ded1ae946.vhd) in the repository folder.
This file get to about 11.4MB and stops growing, I've waited over 1 hour and
the vm-import cmd never returns and the vhd file does not get any bigger.

I have to force vmware player to reboot, after it reboots I see the
xvappliance listed in the "All VMs" menu of xcp with a status of halted.
Attempts to start the vm results in msg "Failed: Traceback (most recent call
last)" , given the xvp xva source is over 1GB and the vhd file is under 12M
I'm assuming the file is  incomplete.

If any can advise me how to achieve a successful import  it would be


Odd ive imported the xvpappliance multiple times with out fail on XCP 1.0

matter of fact i just did it last night on a new XCP box, though im not sure why your running XCP

inside vmware player.. which im guessing might be an issue, though cant say for sure

it does import fine when XCP is on bare metal
