Description of problem: When exporting a VM to an OVA file the export succeeds, but when extracting the ovf file from the OVA file via tar the ovf metadata has its format field set to RAW. An inspection of the actual disk file via qemu-img info shows that the disk format is actually qcow2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Export as an OVA file a VM with a disk attached
2. Access the Host and use tar xvf to extract the vm.ovf file and the disk
3. open the ovf file and search for the format
The format is set to RAW
The format should be set to COW
Use "qemu-img info " command on the disk file to verify the format is qcow2.

Adding to the above that the disk should be of type RAW and with no snapshots.
