I use a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization system and need to get a VM off the system an onto a standalone box running KVM. Red Hat don't seem to support a way to do this, but commented that the latest virt-convert should do it.

I tried copying the image off the nfs export domain (both ovf definition and disk file), then ran

virt-convert -i ovf -o virt-image ovf-file.ovf

But I get the error: list index out of range

The problem seems the same as this. I've tried it on RHEL 6, Centos 5.6 and Fedora 14. Any suggestions on what is going wrong?

Since you have the disk image from the export domain, why not simply create a new VM in virt-manager or virsh, with the same params the RHEV one had, and attach the disk image to it?
