    how to convert raw disk image to scsi vmdk image

    sebjames14 Novice

      I'm investigating how to deliver our network print appliance as a vmware appliance.

       

      We build the linux based os from a script whichn generates boot, root and configuration partitons as raw images.

       

      These can be pulled together in a disk image created using standard unix tools like dd and fdisk.

       

      I found that you can use qemu-img to convert that raw disk image into a vmware 3 or 4 compatible image.

       

      My problem is that this presents as an ide disk which would require us to rewrite our software

       

      Is there a tool i can use offline to create a scsi vmdk image from a raw disk image?

       

      thanks, seb james
