Migration script from oVirt/RHEV to Proxmox

I successfully managed to migrate 200+ Linux VMs from oVirt/RHEV to Proxmox by utilizing oVirt and Proxmox APIs. I thought that i share the script since i guess that others are in the same situation as myself. Script does no changes to the oVirt environment more than initiate shutdown of the VM before the migration process begins.


I am a network engineer, not a developer :)
Hi Karz,
First of all thank you for posting the scrip, I have couple of questions as I am in a similar situation:
1.- where would I run the script from, from the oVirt Engine as the script name infers ovirt_to_proxmox.py?
2.-If possible, can you provide an example?

Thanks again !
We were able to get it to work, just needed a few minor adjustments for our environment.
Thank Karz, this weas of great help !
