vmware vmx file to convert
To start using a pre-existing vmware image with libvirt, you simply copy the vmware .vmx file and .vmdk file to a new directory. Then do:
vmware2libvirt -f ./file.vmx > file.xml
virsh -c qemu:///system define file.xml
At this point, your vmware image should be available to libvirt.
vmware2libvirt currently will use the first scsi disk if found, otherwise the first ide disk. It will also use the first ethernet interface found.
vmware2libvirt is (C) 2008, Canonical Ltd.
