VM import and export

Xen Orchestra can import and export VM's in XVA format (XenServer format) or import OVA files (OVF1 format).

We support OVA import from VirtualBox. Feel free to report issues with OVA from other virtualization platforms.


XVA files

To import an XVA file, just go to the New/Import menu:

Select the target pool and SR where the VM will be imported. Then, drag and drop your file and click on the import button.

OVA files

OVA files contains extra info that you need to check before importing, like name, etc.

When you are OK with these settings, just click on the "Import" button.


Exported VMs are in XVA format

Just access the page for the VM that you want to export, and click on the "Export" button in the toolbar. You'll instantly download a compressed XVA file.

It works even if the VM is running, because we'll automatically export a snapshot of this VM.

Snapshot export

In the VM "Snapshots" tab, you can also export a snapshot like you export a VM.
