As in the subject, Is there a way to use/manage .qcow2 disks images from interface?
Other question: In the /etc/webmin/servers there are the VM settings. Is there a way to have it named using something more explicit than the serial time (I suppose)?
Seems that Renaming it, simply duplicate the entry in VM list …
We don’t support qcow or qcow2, for two reasons :
- There is no way to loopback mount a qcow2 image to access the filesystem inside it, which Cloudmin uses to change passwords, manage network interfaces and add disks.
- The qcow format doesn’t have predictable disk usage, unlike the raw format. This means that your host system might run out of disk space expanding a qcow disk image, causing writes to fail on the VM.
Thanks for replay.
I am moving VMs from Proxmox (1.9 and 2.x), to cloudmin.
What is the best way to convert it in raw format for cloudmin (preferred syntax)?
Problems if I simply add the disks to “manage disks” menu?
I had some annoying problems in converting a Windows 7 VM (java VNC …). Is cloudmin only Linux oriented or can be used also with Windows VM (7 + 2008r2)?
You can use the
qemu-img command to convert disk files to raw format, which Cloudmin supports.
