  • 1.  How to Create an OVF Template

    Posted Jun 01, 2015 06:37 PM

    Folks,

    I am trying to create an OVF template that prompts and sets IPv4 network settings during the deployment phase of a OVF template (LINUX VM). The goal here is, anytime that my .OVF template is deployed, the vAPP property configuration screen will ask me for IP, Netmask, Gateway, and DNS1,2.

    Basically, what I am trying to do is similar to the Network Settings screen that comes with VMware VCetner Virtual Appliance (Screenshot attached) which needs to be filled up during the deployment phase of  virtual appliance .OVF file. However, for some reason, during power on my VM is not getting the network settings configuration (screenshot attached) from my vAPP property configuration screen.

    I am not sure if I need some ingest script to push the network settings configuration from vAPP property configuration screen to the VM, or something that I am missing here...

    Any help is appreciate!

    Regards,

    Andy
