[SOLVED] Azure to PVE migration problems


Renowned Member

I'm struggling with a seemingly simple task. I've copied the contents of an old Debian 8/Jessie VM from Azure to a PVE 6.1-7 host using rsync. I've set up boot, etc., and the VM does start booting, but I see the messages per attached image and it's stuck there forever. The root partition is a simple partition, not LVM, but LVM is used on other partitions. The kernel running is the latest 4.9 from jessie-backports. I've done many similar migration tasks before from various other platforms, always with success. This kind of error is a first. Disk is Virtio-SCSI.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Keywords: random lvm uninitialized urandom read (4 bytes read)

OK, it was actually a pretty lame issue. I had to clean up the garbage in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub and presto, booting like it should. I leave this "solution" here for search engines.
