Workflow for moving images into Ceph


We have a very functional ONE instance with 7 nodes. We started with an NFS mounted directory for images and now I’ve added Ceph into the mix and would like to move our images there. I can’t seem to find a simple way to do this. Are there recommendations or scripts somewhere to migrating images from one datastore to another?

this thread might be of help:

Using qemu-img you can convert the images to ceph-rbd format, see:

If you have just a few images, convert them manually and update your templates with the new ceph-images, then re-instantiate your VM’s.

hope this helps!
