question regarding vmdk file format for baremetal provisioning

rsamprat
Hi
Am using a vmdk file for provisioning baremetal. But the nova failed with nova-compute log having the following message:
ERROR nova.compute.manager ..... Unexpected error while running command qemu-img convert ....error while reading sector 131072 .... Invalid argument.

Can someone provide some help/pointers.
Thanks
Ravi

You'll need a format qemu-img supports; diskimage-builder outputs
qcow2 by default, for instance.

Also note it must be a partition image, not a full disk image.

Cheers,
Rob

The vmdk i have is from a VM that has not been partitioned, does it mean, it will not work?
Meaning, i cannot use an off the shelf kernel, ramdisk and use the qcow2-converted-image-from-vmdk?
Thanks
Ravi
