I am attempting to take the Ubuntu cloud image for Openstack and convert it to VMDK to import into (Openstack) Glance for a client that only uses ESXi as a hypervisor. I was unable to find any place that had this available for download so I am attempting to build one.
I am downloading from Ubuntu here:
This image is in QCOW2 format. I am then converting it with qemu-image convert:
qemu-img convert -f qcow2 trusty-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img -O vmdk trusty-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.vmdk
Here is the result:
Let me know if you have any luck with this and what versions of VMWare/VCenter you are importing to if you would.
