I have to clone and manage some LVM RAW volumes that were created without making filesystem ext4. So I tried to mount this volume and linux didn't find any filesystem to mount. Inside this volumes I have some guest kvm machines. I used to clone virt-clone utility with this syntax:
virt-clone --original vmname --name vmname-clone -f /mnt/pathofcloneddisk/myvmdisk.qcow2
When I tried to boot the cloned machine I get this error:
error: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: (process:31100): GLib-WARNING **: gmem.c:483: custom memory allocation vtable not supported 2019-03-19T08:37:21.462102Z qemu-kvm: -drive file=/mnt/pathofcloneddisk/myvmdisk.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio-disk0,format=raw,cache=none,aio=native: could not open disk image /mnt/pathofcloneddisk/myvmdisk.qcow2: Could not open '/mnt/pathofcloneddisk/myvmdisk.qcow2': Permission denied
My mount point is an nfs share and i have set 777 permission on folder. I would like to ask if is possible to mount or read this qcow2 disk image or start the vm clone because I need to use the clone/mount a backup to try to reset the root lost password. Also is it possible to access to lvm volume that wasn't formatted with a filesystem?
This is my vm xml config file:
<disk type='block' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='none' io='native'/> <source dev='/dev/mapper/VolumeGroup01-vm001-disk'/> <target dev='vda' bus='virtio'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x06' function='0x0'/> </disk>
blkid command output:
I appreciate so much any suggestion and maybe what is the best practice to cloning and booting kvm guest machines that I haven't access.
