VDDK (Virtual Disk Development Kit) is a proprietary VMware library for accessing VMDK files and VMware ESX servers. Note that the license of the VDDK library is highly restrictive, preventing any commercial usage without negotiating a separate license from VMware. In order to obtain the VDDK library you have to register for an account and download it from: https://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vddk/ This directory contains an nbdkit plugin which uses this library to export VMDK files and VMware disks over NBD. You do NOT require VDDK to compile the plugin, and the plugin does not contain any VMware code. You only need VDDK at runtime. The plugin uses dlopen to load the library from LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or else the standard shared library paths). After building nbdkit-vddk-plugin.so, read the man page to find out how to use it (nbdkit-vddk-plugin(1)). You'll probably also want to read the VDDK developer documentation. Bugs ---- Write calls sometimes return VIX_E_DISK_OUTOFRANGE even for write requests which are well inside the disk.
