I am attempting to use libvirtd/kvm on CentOS 5.latest to migrate a SCO OpenServer 5.0.6a VM from the old VMware server. I have converted the multiple vmdk disk files to a single file, then used qemu-img convert to create files for libvirtd, both qcow2 and raw formats. After many attempts to get this working I'm up against what appears to be a brick wall. + The VMware VMs are using straight 'ide' HD emulation which has been working well for several years. + The 'ide' on libvirtd appears to map to SATA which isn't supported by OSR5. I've tried doing a fresh install from CDROM, but the installation fails to find the hard disk. I might be able to find the appropriate BTLD for this, but that won't help migrating existing VMs. + When I tried using 'scsi' libvirtd says this isn't supported. This would be my preferred emulation as we have used SCSI drives since the early days of Xenix on Tandy hardware. + The final problem if these are solved is that SCO is funny about its drive geometry, and the current versions of libvirtd and qemu don't appear to support the <geometry> allowing one to specify heads, cylinders, etc. Am I going to have to resort to using VMware workstation for this?
