Subject Re: Creating VM from .vhd
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2016 15:12:19 GMT
1) What changes needs to be done at VM (from which the .vhd is derived) to
tune is according to current cloud environment? Especially, if the source
hypervisor for vhd is hyperV?

You should remove hyperV’s drivers and install the ones required by the
hypervisor you intend to use.


2) Also, is there any other way to create VM from vhd file?
Registering the “.vhd” as a template and then spinning a VM from it


3) If I export VM in in .ova or .ovf format, can those be implemented in
cloudstack using such formats?

Currently, only if you intend to use this template with VMware systems.
Otherwise, you have to stick with hypervisors' supported format such as
.vhd, COW, RAW, TAR and others.
