In our application we are downloading a qcow2 image and after that we are supposed to import that as OVF.

So any way to convert qcow2 --> OVF or qcow2 --> vmdk(using qemu-img convert) --> ovf .

Hi Chopper3 I want it in OVF format. Is that possible ? – Reuben Jun 13 '14 at 9:23
That tool doesn't do it but once it's imported into vCenter as a vmdk you could then package it up into an .ova via file/export. – Chopper3 Jun 13 '14 at 9:25
