Convert VM File Types

VM FormatsTo avoid booting into Windows and downloading VMware's VM converter, I use qemu-img to convert virtual machine's to my needs. It's free, fast and open source. You can download it from from the repos in most Linux distros.


qemu-img convert -O [output format] [input filename] [output filename]


Convert VirtualBox vdi to VMware vmdk

qemu-img convert -O vmdk Filename.vdi Filename.vmdk


Convert  VMware vmdk to VirtualBox vdi

qemu-img convert -O vdi Filename.vmdk Filename.vdi


Convert VMware vmdk to raw

qemu-img convert -O raw Filename.vmdk Filename.raw
