Migrate an ESXi VM with two drives

Jim Archer asked:

I have some very old Debian VMs that were migrated from physical to VMWare, and now I need to get them off VMWare and into a service like Vultr. The problem is that these have two “physical” drives and so two sets of vmdk files. I can make a raw image file from each vdmk (using qemu-img), but how do I make one raw image I can import as a single virtual server?

My answer:


You don’t. You make two raw images, one per virtual disk, and attach both of them to your new KVM virtual machine.
