Qcow2 import dracut timeout error


Oct 17, 2021
I imported the appliance proxmox in qcow2 format named Hpe OneView and then added the VM I created. However, when I run the VM, I get the following error. The VM opens but does not run. How can I solve this problem?

Warring Dracut-initqueue timeout script


/dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root does not exist
/dev/vg01/lv_root does not exist
/dev/vg01/lv_swap does not exist

I imported qcow2 proxmox of Hpe Oneview with the steps in the link. Where could I have made a mistake?

I got the above error message before, when I tried to import the (ESXi) vmdk disk file.
However I got past the error by doing the following:

1. At least for me, the crucial point seems to be that I had to download the KVM version instead of the ESXi version of OneView. In my case, the file is named HPE_OneView_8.80.00_KVM_Z7550-97741.tar.gz
2. copy the *.tar.gz file to your Proxmox host, for example into the /var/lib/vz/template/iso/ directory
3. extract, you´ll get a *.qcow2 file: HPEOneView-8.80.00-0487836-disk1.qcow2
cd /var/lib/vz/template/iso/
tar xzf HPE_OneView_8.80.00_KVM_Z7550-97741.tar.gz
4. create vm (with "112" being a free id):
qm create 112
5. import disk, for example like this:
qm disk import 112 HPEOneView-8.80.00-0487836-disk1.qcow2 local-lvm
6. Go back to the gui and activate the imported disk - click on the unused disk you just imported, then click Add
7. add at least one network device (model: VirtIO)
8. adjust other vm attributes if you like. I had to configure 4 cpu sockets and 8GB of RAM at least to make the appliance complete its first run.
9. start vm (OneView) and be patient, setup takes a while. Your vm might reboot several times
