How to convert from Oracle VM format to VMware ESX? I found manual how to convert only from VMware to Oracle VM. So I used the same tool to convert disk:
#qemu-img convert -f raw file1.img -O vmdk file1.vmdk
1) Disk became IDE, and I don't know any tool that allows editing 4GB files.
2) Ok, I connected vmdk to Workstation - and see no partition table on disk.
What OS is the OracleVM if it is Windows then treat it as a phyiscal machine and use VMware Converter to convert it into VMware format.

Oracle VM - is Xen-based virtualization platform from Oracle. I have a couple of VM's in this format (i.e. virtual disks) and have no spare servers to install Oracle VM. Guest OS is Oracle Linux as far as I understood.
Main question is how to convert hard disk from this .img to .vmdk? Qemu-img didn't do it right way.
Ok guys, now it's time to get serious. I mean, i want to use vmware and all their features, but (And here is the thing) if you want to run a Oracles VM Templates....well you know it's hell on earth
well you know it's hell on earth
no we didn't know that, thanks for the update.
Converting FROM another vendor product still is NOT a VM ware problem, even though there are alternatives like converting it as a LIVE VM.
Oracle is ALSO Redhat rebranded, just FYI
