VM Provisioning Failed - kpartx error James Griffiths Updated November 08, 2017 00:00 Follow Issue when trying to build a VM if it fails during the provisioning stage with this error: [root@backup01 ~]# kpartx -s -p X -a /dev/onapp-poggicyy8nwkzm/qkeg4anouxd21l device-mapper: resume ioctl on onapp--poggicyy8nwkzm-qkeg4anouxd21lX1 failed: Invalid argument create/reload failed on onapp--poggicyy8nwkzm-qkeg4anouxd21lX1 From dmesg device-mapper: table: 253:9: dm-8 too small for target: start=2048, len=62908416, dev_size=41943040 Environment Any OnApp Linux VMs on KVM, Windows VMs on XEN / KVM Resolution Increase the size of the primary disk for the VM and then rebuild the machine again. There might be some trial and error involved in order to find the right disk size that works for you. Cause Generally this means that the disk size you are trying to use is too small for the minimum requirement from the template to be met.
