Hi Team,

I'm new to proxmox and all my VM disks in the node 1 are in qcow2 format. I would like to convert it in VMDK format to migrate it in VM Ware. I dont know where to run the below command. So can someone help me to execute the query

qemu-img convert -f qcow2 imagediskname.qcow2 -O vmdk myNewImage.vmdk


Thanks

Web interface: select Node (not your VM!) it is one line below Datacenter.
Select >_Shell

stop your VM: qm stop <VMID>
convert: qemu-img convert -f qcow2 /var/lib/vz/images/<VMID>/imagediskname.qcow2 -O vmdk /path/to/myNewImage.vmdk

copy/move /path/to/myNewImage.vmdk destination
