Converting LVM virtual machine storage to image

Thanks to arunnsblog.com

To convert the LVM disk to qcow2 formatted disk image,

Use lvdisplay to get the Logical volume name

$ sudo lvdisplay

Use qemu-img to convert to the required image format

# qemu-img convert -O qcow2 /dev/mapper/lv_name <destination_file>.qcow2

eg:

# qemu-img convert -O qcow2 /dev/mapper/disk1 disk1.qcow2

This will be useful to replicate the virtual machines to other hardware.

Hi All, I like to spend time on black and white screen with linux. I love to learn new things in linux specially in virtualization. Currently I am working on OpenStack like to dig deep.
