I tried to recreate the /etc directory of the guest from
the sosreport.  However I can't reproduce the Augeas failure.

Since this is likely a data-driven bug, are you able to
get me a disk image of the guest system?

If you can connect to the ESX server (eg. over https using
a browser) then you should be able to download a virtual
file called something like


which (despite the extension) is really a raw-format disk image.

Using the disk image, I would be able to run a command such as:

guestfish -xv --ro -a nagios-flat.vmdk -m /dev/mapper/vg_nagios-lv_root <<EOF
aug-init / 1

to see if I am able to reproduce the bug.

Comment 10 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-02-11 22:08:02 UTC
For my own reference, installed packages on the virt-v2v conversion host:


All are up to date.

Comment 12 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-02-24 17:30:06 UTC
Closing as insufficient data.  However it still appears
to be a bug here.
