Ticket #7343 (closed defect: fixed)
Cannot import VM on 3.2.8 exported from 3.2.6

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
I installed Osol b134 into Vbox on Solaris. I then exported it, and now import attempts fail, both on WinXP (32 bit), and Mac (exact version not known).
I created two virtual disks, one for rpool (a 20 GB sparse file, now ~3.5GB ), and one 2 GB for swap (sparse too. now ~150MB).
This same virtual machine could successfully be exported from my machine, and imported back on both mac and xp with VBox 3.2.6 (and earlier). With 3.2.8, if I import it, only the swap image is imported - twice (swap.vmdk and swap_1.vmdk).
Upon the startup of the guest, all we get is "bad pbr sig", which is true, since we have two swaps, both without a boot record.
If I manually remove swap_1.vmdk, move swap.vmdk to secondary slave (as in the original setup)(ICH6 is used), and manually add the rpool root image to pri master, then Osol begins to boot. If we break into the console, we can see that the copyright is displayed, but after that a lot of ata read errors pop up, and the guest OS goes into a continuous reboot cycle.
If I boot from an osolb134 cd iso, and try zpool import , it shows the disk in question, but I'm unable to import the rpool - Solaris says, that devices in the pool are not available.
