Re: [openstack-dev] [OpenStack][VMWare] qemu-img convert problems for VM creation

2014-04-17 Thread Jay Lau
Thanks Brown, I was using same way as you did but always failed, not sure
if it is caused by my image but the image does work for KVM before convert.

I will try your image later.

Thanks!

 Good timing.  I just tried this today for the first time.
 Here's what worked for me:

 wget
 http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/saucy/current/saucy-server-cloudimg-i386-disk1.img

 qemu-img convert -f qcow2 saucy-server-cloudimg-i386-disk1.img -O vmdk
 saucy-server-cloudimg-i386-disk1.vmdk

 glance image-create --name precise-cloud --is-public=True
 --container-format=bare --disk-format=vmdk --property
 vmware_disktype=sparse --property vmware_adaptertype=ide 
 saucy-server-cloudimg-i386-disk1.vmdk

 nova boot --config-drive=true --image saucy-cloud --flavor m1.small --poll

 Using the qemu-img utility, disk images in several formats (such as,
 qcow2) can be converted to the VMDK format.

 For example, the following command can be used to convert a qcow2 Ubuntu
 Precise cloud

 :

 $ qemu-img convert -f qcow2 
 ~/Downloads/precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img \
 -O vmdk precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.vmdk

 VMDK disks converted through qemu-img are always monolithic sparse VMDK
 disks with an IDE adapter type. Using the previous example of the Precise
 Ubuntu image after the qemu-img conversion, the command to upload the
 VMDK disk should be something like:

 $ glance image-create --name precise-cloud --is-public=True \
 --container-format=bare --disk-format=vmdk \
 --property vmware_disktype=sparse \
 --property vmware_adaptertype=ide  \
 precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.vmdk
