Known Issues and Troubleshooting
RHEL 7.x VM might not start after conversion to VMware
After you convert a RHEL 7.x virtual machine from Hyper-V to VMware, the VM might fail to boot.
Drivers that are loaded in initrd for Hyper-V Linux VMs do not work after conversion to VMware. Required drivers need to be loaded into default initrd after conversion.
- Boot the converted VM using the Rescue Mode option.
The initial RAM file system for Rescue Mode includes the IDE driver.
- Make a backup of the initial RAM disk (initrd).
- Run the following command to generate a new initial RAM file system for the converted VM:
This command loads required modules that are needed to access the root file system.
- Reboot the virtual machine using the default boot option.
