Re: [virt-tools-list] how to convert virtualbox vm instance to kvm instance, and then run kvm instance under virt-manager?

dear eric,

thanks for your advice. i check the virt-v2v definition, it says "Virt-v2v allows you to convert virtual machines from Xen and VMware over to KVM". i want to convert vm from virtaulbox to kvm, can virt-v2v do this? otherwise, whatelse can?

That's part of the work, but not complete.  You also need to install new
drivers into the guest, and make some other tweaks.

It is much easier to use virt-v2v for this task, instead of trying to
figure out all the pieces yourself.
