VIRT-CONVERT(1)     Virtual Machine Install Tools    VIRT-CONVERT(1)



NAME
       virt-convert - convert virtual machines between formats

SYNOPSIS
       virt-convert [OPTION]... INPUT.VMX|INPUT-DIR
       [OUTPUT.XML|OUTPUT-DIR]

DESCRIPTION
       virt-convert is a command line tool for converting virtual
       machines from one format to another. Pass in either a VM
       definition file (such as VMWare vmx format) or a directory
       containing a VM. By default, a new VM definition file, and
       converted disk images, will be placed in a new output
       directory.

       If an output directory is specified, it will be created if
       necessary, and the output VM definition placed within, along
       with any disk images as needed.

       If an output VM definition file is specified, it will be
       created alongside any disks in the same directory.

OPTIONS
       Any of the options can be omitted, in which case virt-convert
       will use defaults when required. An input VM definition or
       containing directory must be provided. By default, an output
       directory is generated based upon the name of the VM. The
       default input format is VMWare vmx, and the default output
       format is a libvirt "image" XML definition (see
       virt-image(5)).

       -h, --help
           Show the help message and exit

       Conversion Options

       -i format
         Input format. Currently, "vmx", "virt-image", and "ovf" are
         supported.

       -o format
         Output format. Currently, "vmx"  and "virt-image" are
         supported.

       -D format
         Output disk format, or "none" if no conversion should be
         performed. See qemu-img(1).

       Virtualization Type options

       Options to override the default virtualization type choices.

       -v, --hvm      Create  a fully virtualized guest image
         Convert machine to a hvm/qemu based image (this is the
         default if paravirt is not specified)

       -p, --paravirt      Create  a paravirtualized guest image
         Convert machine to a paravirt xen based image

       General Options

       General configuration parameters that apply to all types of
       guest installs.

       -a ARCH, --arch=ARCH
         Architecture of the virtual machine (i686, x86_64, ppc).
         Defaults to that of the host machine.

       --os-type=OS_TYPE
         Optimize the guest configuration for a type of operating
         system (ex. 'linux', 'windows'). This will attempt to pick
         the most suitable ACPI & APIC settings, optimally supported
         mouse drivers, virtio, and generally accommodate other
         operating system quirks.  See virt-install(1) for valid
         values.

       --os-variant=OS_VARIANT
         Further optimize the guest configuration for a specific
         operating system variant (ex. 'fedora8', 'winxp'). This
         parameter is optional, and does not require an "--os-type"
         to be specified. See virt-install(1) for valid values.

       --noapic
         Override the OS type / variant to disables the APIC setting
         for fully virtualized guest.

       --noacpi
         Override the OS type / variant to disables the ACPI setting
         for fully virtualized guest.

       Miscellaneous Options

       -q, --quiet
         Avoid verbose output.

       -d, --debug
         Print debugging information

EXAMPLES
       Convert a paravirt guest from "image.vmx":

         # virt-convert --arch=i686 --paravirt image.vmx

       Convert a 64-bit hvm guest:

         # virt-convert --arch=x86_64 vmx-appliance/ hvm-appliance/
