Convert VMware server hard disk image to Virtualbox


First, combine all the disk pieces into a larger vmware disk:

# vmware-vdiskmanager -r OldDiskNameWithoutTheNumberedPieces-0.vmdk -t 0 NewDiskName-Copy.vmdk

Second, convert this NewDisk to a raw image (requires qemu)
#qemu-img convert NewDiskName-Copy.vmdk NewDiskImage.img
Finally, convert the raw image to a VirtualBox VDI disk:

#VBoxManage convertfromraw – -format VDI NewDiskImage.img VirtualBoxDisk1.vdi

Do the above to each of your virtual hard drives in VMware. Then create a new virtual machine with virtualbox and specify the newly converted disks as the harddrives.
