I am attempting to use virt-p2v to move a physical server to a xen instance. The Xen box is CentOS 5.2 fully updated and running Xen. The server to migrate is also CentOS 5.2 fully updated. Everything appears to work entirely fine with the process. However, during copying it errors out with the following error:

Unix.Unix_error(13, "read", "")

at which point the machine is frozen and I have no resort except to reboot. I have tried varying parameters, even going to a test server to migrate, to no effect. Unfortunately, googling the issue has not brought any level of success. Has anyone experienced this issue before or have any thoughts or suggestions? This is an excellent tool that will save me alot of time in migration, so I would really like to find a way to make this work.

Many thanks! Mike
