The remote host is missing an update for the 'virt-v2v'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
virt-v2v is a tool for converting and importing virtual machines to
libvirt-managed KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine), or Red Hat Enterprise
Using virt-v2v to convert a guest that has a password-protected VNC console
to a KVM guest removed that password protection from the converted guest:
after conversion, a password was not required to access the converted
guest's VNC console. Now, converted guests will require the same VNC
console password as the original guest. Note that when converting a guest
to run on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, virt-v2v will display a
warning that VNC passwords are not supported. (CVE-2011-1773)
Note: The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 perl-Sys-Virt update must also be
installed to correct CVE-2011-1773.
* When converting a guest virtual machine (VM), whose name contained
certain characters, virt-v2v would create a converted guest with a
corrupted name. Now, virt-v2v will not corrupt guest names. (BZ#665883)
* There were numerous usability issues when running virt-v2v as a non-root
user. This update makes it simpler to run virt-v2v as a non-root user.
* virt-v2v failed to convert a Microsoft Windows guest with Windows
Recovery Console installed in a separate partition. Now, virt-v2v will
successfully convert a guest with Windows Recovery Console installed in a
separate partition by ignoring that partition. (BZ#673066)
* virt-v2v failed to convert a Red Hat Enterprise Linux guest which did not
have the symlink '/boot/grub/menu.lst'. With this update, virt-v2v can
select a grub configuration file from several places. (BZ#694364)
* This update removes information about the usage of deprecated command
line options in the virt-v2v man page. (BZ#694370)
* virt-v2v would fail to correctly change the allocation policy, (sparse or
preallocated) when converting a guest with QCOW2 image format. The error
message 'Cannot import VM, The selected disk configuration is not
supported' was displayed. With this update, allocation policy changes to a
guest with QCOW2 storage will work correctly. (BZ#696089)
* The options '--network' and '--bridge' can not be used
in conjunction when converting a guest, but no error message was displayed.
With this update, virt-v2v will now display an error message if the mutually
exclusive '--network' and '--bridge' command line opti ...
