Convert OVF files into the RHEV

Latest response

Hi ,

We have OVF  files ( vmdk,mf and ovf  ) of  VMware guest  files which   reside not  on its  original  ESX server  .


The  purpose is to deploy VMware ovf  files when an  original guest  is running but its OVF  files are available somewhere in the network  .


How to import this VMware  ovf   files  into the RHEV ?

If you have the original ESX server around, use virt-v2v.


Otherwise you can convert the vmdk files using VMware's vdiskmanager program into a format the KVM can use (eg. to raw).
