LVM not booting after VM migration from KVM to VMWare

by Fred   Last Updated September 11, 2019 23:00 PM

I've migrated a VM from an old system based on Centos and KVM. The VM itself is also based on Centos. The VM had 4 disks in it and those are still being kept, everything was basically converted.

The problem I am facing is that after all the disk converstions and everything being recognized by VMWare, when I try to boot the system, it stalls without even prompting for any OS start. My guess is that it is not reading LVM or for some reason LVM is not being activated. I am kind of blind in here as I don't know what else to look. I have also tried a Centos recovery session, where I can see all the volumes and data inside, only after running the "vgchange -a y" command.

Is there someone who could point me to some other direction? I did this type of conversion before but the VM had only one disk, so that was "easy".
