I will P2V this server and the workflow creation fail with this message
: "At least one swap partition must be recreated in the target. Swap
space /dev/dm-3 will not be recreated in the target"

Do you have a idea ?

Re: swap problem SLES 10 SP2 - OES 11


Is LVM setup on these Linux workloads?
If so, do the volume groups they appear in the tab Volume Groups (from
the window in the screenshot)?
Similar problems with the same error message have been investigated and
resolved by the development team, so I would advise testing this same
scenario with Migrate 12.1 and Patch Update 1, which is found on the
patch finder of the download site.

If the problem remains in Migrate 12.1 with Patch Update 1 installed, it
would be best to create a service request with the technical support
team as troubleshooting could get pretty involved.

Thank's for your reply

No LVM, just NSS. I have found a workaround with disable swapp on source
(swapoff) and the message disappears.

The P2V stop working at step 5.2: "Verifying Controller Connection
(Recoverable Error - 99% complete)" but it's an other problem !

I have understanf the version 12.1 of platespin don't support NSS and
volumes > 1Tb, it's wrong ?

Re: swap problem SLES 10 SP2 - OES 11


You are correct. Migrate 12.1 doesn't support OES. I'm glad you were
able to find a workaround for that problem of "at least one swap
partition must be created on the target).

If you're having a problem with "Verifying Controller Connection
(Recoverable Error - 99% complete)", it's likely that the machine
(either target or source) that has the controller installed is not able
to communicate back to the PlateSpin server. Troubleshooting methods may
be different depending on which machine is in question, so it would be
best to create a service request to have the technical support team help
with investigating.
