virt-p2v was able to convert my centOS 5.2 physical machine to xen virtual machine and it runs great. Now, I am working on to convert this full virt machine to para virt .

Under my domU i have installed kernel-xen (since it is needed ) , and edited my grub menu to use the installed kernel. 

My grub menu file in domU looks like:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5xen.img                              

Here is my config file that I have used (for para):

name = "localhost_localdomain"
uuid = "a57400f11c2138ec41087b80e813496e"
maxmem = 512
memory = 512
vcpus = 1
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
disk = [ "file:/freespace/p2v-localhost_localdomain-200811061823-hda.img,hda,w" ]
vif = [ "mac=00:16:3e:e6:3b:e2" ]
#keymap = "en-us"
#serial = "pty"
extra = "xencons=tty"
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
vfb = [  ]
vif = [ "mac=00:16:3e:17:03:9f,bridge=xenbr0" ]

The error I am getting is:


[root@ha2 xen]# xm create /etc/xen/localhost_localdomain -c
Using config file "/etc/xen/localhost_localdomain".

PCI: Fatal: No PCI config space access function found

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks !
