Problem moving guests from Solaris 11 Express to Ubuntu.

Postby plexor » 17. Aug 2011, 20:59

I have tried to migrate (move) my Debian Squeeze x86_64 guest from Solaris 11 Express running Vbox 4.0.12 to an Ubuntu Server 11.04 x86_64 running Vbox 4.0.12.

When moved the guest starts and loads the kernel. It stops after 'Loading initial ramdisk' and show no activity on the virtual harddisk.
I have used Export and Import.

Any ideas someone ?

Compare the settings and make sure that they are as close as possible to the original. Debian should compensate for some but not all.

The settings should be identical? I was using Export Appliance and then Import Appliance in the Ubuntu-side.

Did you verify them? I mean after all you did ask for help. I have done this a long time.
While it may or may not be your problem it is the first place to check. Then if it still does not work you are going to need to provide more information than it does not work.
Error messages (exact), guest log file (as an attachment).

Config file is here http://plexor01.plexor.se/pub/vm-mail-01.vbox

Logfile is here http://plexor01.plexor.se/pub/VBox.log

I even tried to boot the virtual machine from a Debian Squeeze x86_64 cd, but same thing happened. When kernel loads it hangs.
