Symptoms

Migration of a physical server to virtual machine (P2V migration) fails almost immediately:

    ~]# pmigrate h root@182.168.10.10 v MyVM
    Warning: the OS partition will be migrated only, the rest will be skipped
    Password:
    Querying configuration...
    Migrating to /var/parallels/MyVM ...
    Operation progress 0 %
    Error: P2V migration failed

parallels.log contains similar output:

Cause

Server has USB HDD attached and Parallels Transporter Agent cannot get information about it. This behavior has been confirmed as a bug with internal ID #PSBM-25182.

Resolution

Bug PSBM-25182 is planned to be fixed in one of the next updates.

Meanwhile as a workaround you may detach USB HDD before performing the migration.
