Ah, that's a bit of a bummer but I guess I can use the p2v conversion for those instances. I tried to convert another VM (this one without a snapshot) and got the error "virt-v2v is unable to convert this guest type" I'm guessing that the problem is that our VMWare VM's are an the v10 format, as I know a lot of tools have issue dealing with the newer format.

There is known issue for importing VMware VM with snapshot: 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1172425 - [RFE]virt-v2v failed to

| Hi Everyone,
|    This doesn't seem to be a bug in oVirt so much as in the
| libvirt/virt-v2v tool it uses for importing, but I figured someone here
| might have run into this issue before.  I'm trying to import some VMs
| from my VMWare cluster and it's failing with a "file not found" when
| trying to download the disk images.  I have files in the datastore like:
| systest-55-000001-delta.vmdk    4G
| systest-55-000001.vmdk  1K
| systest-55-Snapshot1.vmsn    4G
| systest-55-flat.vmdk 40G
| systest-55.vmdk   1K
| ... bunch more small .vm?? files
| For some reason virt-v2v is trying to download a file called
| systest-55-000001-flat.vmdk which doesn't exist.  I'm assuming this has
| something to do with the snapshots stored in the folder...  Does anyone
| know a way to deal with that?  Can I just delete the snapshots or is
| that going to delete data stored on the VM since the last snapshot?  I'm
| using virt-v2v 1.28.1 if that makes a difference.
