I have openstack lab setup with me on that I launched the instance with cinder volume backend so it will create (boot,root) volume under cinder-volume VG but now I want to convert instance to vmdk to launch the same instance on VMware esxi.

Please let me know how I can achieve this?

Got my answer on following link (

Command as under: qemu-img convert -O qcow2 /dev/mapper/lv_name <destination_file>.qcow2

Then we can convert qcow2 to vmdk.
