  • 1.  Import-Vapp with source being content library

    Posted Oct 24, 2019 10:05 PM

    I have seen powercli code using the Import-vApp cmdlet.

    I have have an ova with several parameters that need to be supplied.  I use Get-OvfConfiguration to get and set these params.

    Is it possible to deploy an ova from the content library in the same way.  I can deploy and supply the values manually from the content library.  Was hoping I could simply pass it a library location for the OVA instead.

    Although the latest PowerCLI 11.5 release adds quite a few content library related cmdlets, I don't think there is an option to get the OVFConfiguration for an OVF located in a content library.

    thanks.

    If anyone from the powerCLI dev team is listening  being able to deploy ovfs and answer questions via powershell would be nice.

    I tried deploying ova from desktop via powershell and the upload speed was terrible (100mbps) but via GUI was fine.  Being able to keep that stuff in a content library would just make things easier.

    regards.

    You can submit an idea on the PowerCLI Ideas website.
