Subject Re: Qcow2 to VHD and VHD files size questions
Date Sat, 18 Jan 2014 23:20:32 GMT
This may apply to you.  I was able to copy out a vhd from vbox and load it into ACS to use
on XenServer hosts. This only worked if I selected the dynamic type of vhd not the fixed size
one.  It only worked in non PV mode but I think that was because I did not have a proper grub
file with the correct root device.  Prior to uploading the vhd as a template you can bzip2
it to shrink the size.

my HTTP template repo into cloudstack takes ages.
