Convert qcow images to VmWare vmdk
- QEMU emulator version 1.7.0
Since we use VmWare in my company, I started to play with it myself.
Being slightly lazy I wanted to reuse some of my KVM images and run them directly in Vmware.
Fortunately the process is dead easy.
# qemu-img convert -f qcow2 file.qcow2 -O vmdk file.vmdk
The same with the new QCOW format, QED:
# qemu-img convert -f qed file.qed -O vmdk file.vmdk
And to convert a QCOW2 image to the new QED format:
# qemu-img convert -f qcow2 file.qcow2 -O qed file.qed
That's all folks.
