       vmware2libvirt - vmware vmx to libvirt xml converter

SYNOPSIS

       vmware2libvirt [-q] -f FILE

DESCRIPTION

       This program outputs a libvirt xml file based on an existing vmware vmx
       file

OPTIONS

       --version
              show program’s version number and exit

       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

       -q, --qemu
              use qemu instead of kvm

       -f FILE, --file=FILE
              vmware vmx file to convert

USAGE

       To start using a pre-existing vmware image  with  libvirt,  you  simply
       copy the vmware .vmx file and .vmdk file to a new directory. Then do:

         vmware2libvirt -f ./file.vmx > file.xml
         virsh -c qemu:///system define file.xml

       At this point, your vmware image should be available to libvirt.

CAVEATS

       vmware2libvirt  currently  will  use  the  first  scsi  disk  if found,
       otherwise the first ide disk. It  will  also  use  the  first  ethernet
       interface found.
