Subject Re: Migrating hyper-v vm's to cloudstack kvm environment
Date Wed, 24 Jan 2018 09:20:28 GMT
Hi Soundarajan,

Yes it is possible – but not necessarily straight forward.

You can convert your hyper-v image file to KVM using qemu-img, doing something like the following
(note input format “vpc”):

(You would first stop the source VM such that you have all writes committed to disk)

qemu-img convert -f vpc -O qcow2 hypervimage.vhd kvmimage.qcow2

Keep in mind though that this is just the first step – if you managed to get the resulting
KVM image up and running you will need to update drivers etc. in the resulting VM – which
can be a challenge.

    Hyper v is not connected to cloudstack its a stand alone host server
    Like copying the vhd/vhdx file from hyperv and importing it in the
