Migrating a Virtual Machine from Scaleway to Proxmox

Posted <2021-08-15 Sun 01:22> by Aaron S. Jackson.

I'm not against Scaleway - I think they offer a great service! Still, I wanted to move one particular virtual machine away without dealing with the hassle of configuring everything again. Here are the general steps which worked for me:

ssh root@remote "dd if=/dev/vda | gzip" | gzip -d | dd of=scaleway.img status=progress
dd if=scaleway.img | ssh root@pve "dd of=/dev/data0/vm-121-disk-0 status=progress"
fdisk /dev/data0/vm-121-disk-0
mount -o remount,rw /

That's it! Worked for me, hope it works for you too!
