I am following this guide for migrating V2V (VMware to proxmox): https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Migration_of_servers_to_Proxmox_VE
I have exported the VM to .ovf/.vmdk and scp'd them over to proxmox. However, the qm command is failing. Output:
root@proxmox1:~# qm importovf 200 /root/awstats2.ovf...
With the help of the Proxmox community and @Dominic we were able to migrate our ESXi VMs across to PVE - thank you!

I have been using ESXI for 5 years now on a 2011 mac mini with no issues. The setup is:
- Dual NIC (one on board, one thunderbolt adapter)
- One NIC is dedicated to WAN
- The other NIC goes to a managed switch in a trunk port that has 3 VLANS + untagged for LAN
- The switch connects to a unifi...
G'day from Australia,
We've got a predicament that we'd appreciate some guidance with.
4x managed VMs run on 2x ESXi hosts (2+2), and there's no supported pathway to migrate them (ie. ditch ESXi in favour of PVE).
Across the remainder of our infrastructure, ESXi has been gladly purged and our...

We have a 4 node proxmox cluster (5.3) where we have a nested ESXi (mostly for migrating old vmware VMs to ceph).
On this nested ESXi a Windows 10 VM (uefi) starts and runs fine.
A Debian 9.3 VM runs and starts fine too.
But a Debian 9.4 VM does not start (when booting a 9.4 netinstall you...
I need your help as I have an urgent requirement in my organization to migrate a VM on the Proxmox hypervisor to the VMware vSphere hypervisor.
Could you please advise if you have an approach which was applied before to do the same?
I've read several threads about different problems with Windows server migrations and am hoping to get pointers here. I'm pretty sure my problems are directly related to hard drive choices as I'm getting the bluescreen STOP 0X0000007B error mentioned in these forums as well as Microsoft Technet...
The problem arose when I tried to migrate VM Ubuntu ESXI 5.5. 5.1 on Proxmox.

2) created a machine with a vmdk disk on Proxmox

I launched VmWare ESXi 5.5 as a Virtual Machine in Proxmox, using this Marksei manual.
Everything is OK, but under ESXi I can launch only 32 bit virtual machines. 64 bit Virtual Machines doesn't work.
Can anybody sugest something?
I am trying to move my last several VMs from ESXi, the linux ones were a cinch but Windows7 ones are giving me some trouble.
On ESXi, I use the "ghettoVCB" backup tool which under the hood, uses "vmkfstools -i" to clone the VMs and make a "thin" .vmdk backup (which is a .vmdk text...
Bonjour à tous,
J'ai fait une installation par défaut de mon serveur Proxmox (v4.2) sur un disque de 2To et il a l'air de fonctionner correctement. J'arrive à accéder à la console web d'administration, concevoir de nouvelle VM (même à émuler la carte son qui fait défaut mais avec un son...

I take nightly backup snapshots of my ESXi linux VMs using a script "ghettoVCB" and the backups are on NFS.
I would like to import the VMDK disks into Proxmox containers. I would like them to be "thin" if this is possible.
Can anyone recommend the steps on the best way to do this...
