Hi Everyone, I have been same problem. My workaround was export VM by CVM after import image via Prism Central. Is there other solution?

Follow my steps:

login any CVM

acli vm.get

We need the vmdisk_uuid information of VM.


qemu-img convert -f raw -O qcow2 -c nfs:// nfs://


We need import this image via Prism Central In url option you put path. (nfs://
