hpvmmigrate: ERROR (host): Incorrect initial message from target VSP.

[ Edited ]

Hello

 

I need to migrate (offline) a VM from a physical host to another and I am getting this not so explanatory error:

hpvmmigrate: ERROR (host): Incorrect initial message from target VSP.

I already done the inverse migration with sucess.

Does anyone knows what's teh issue here?

I can't even find any log....

 


Thanks,

Tânia

Re: hpvmmigrate: ERROR (host): Incorrect initial message from target VSP.

This is typically ssh setup related. ssh from source to target must work passwordless.

If you are using "-hpvm-migr" (see HPVM admin manual), the ssh must work without

password for <target_hostname>-hpvm-migr.

Re: hpvmmigrate: ERROR (host): Incorrect initial message from target VSP.

If your /etc/profile or similar login script is customized to output e.g. legal warning messages, these can confuse programs that use shell sessions as conduits for their protocol, like hpvmmigrate, rdist, rsync, scp and others.

 

You should make sure that all the commands in /etc/profile and root's ~/.profile that output any messages to the terminal are made conditional, so that they will be skipped if the session does not actually have a TTY device associated with it. The "tty -s" command can be used to identify these situations.

 

For example, if your /etc/profile has a command:

cat /etc/legal_warning.txt

 you should change it to:

if tty -s; then
        cat /etc/legal_warning.txt
fi

 This will automatically bypass the legal warning if the session has no TTY device associated with it (because in such situations, a program is usually reading the output instead of a human).
