Tools for creating virtual machine images

Project description

vmakedk provides command-line tools for creating VMDK images backed by sparse files based on a user supplied layout described with JSON.

In most cases, it runs as root and performs the following:

  • Create sparse files to provide the backing store for each VMDK
  • Generate VMDK descriptior files for all disks
  • Create filesystems (mkfs) with labels for each disk
  • Attach free loopback devices (/dev/loopN) to each disk image
  • Mount all devices in a sandbox/chroot environment

It can also output an appropriate /etc/fstab for the same layout.
