- Create new VM
- Note the VM ID
- If you have a .ova or .ovf file, you simply need to do the following to extract the vmdk:
tar -xvf *.ova
- Import the disk into the vmid of the new vm
qm importdisk targetvmid disk001.vmdk local -format qcow2
qm importdisk targetvmid disk001.vmdk local-lvm -format qcow2
Depending on the storage you have setup.
- It’s also worth noting that at least on my particular homelab setup, running the qm importdisk command brought the server to it’s knees until the import completes.
