Hey,

we have some VMs on our old cluster (not proxmox, libvirt based) that we want to migrate to our new proxmox cluster. The VM storage used on the old cluster are lvm volumes. So what I need is a way to import these block devices to the new proxmox cluster using ceph as storage backend. Is there a way to archive this without creating a disk image with dd beforehand that can be imported by qm importdisk?

IMHO dd is not a problem and the best way to do it.
