  • 1.  importing OVA to ESXi not working

    Posted May 17, 2017 06:01 PM

    I created a VM on my Mac using Fusion and exported it to an OVA.

    I then tried to deploy that to my ESXi 6.5 server....

    It uploaded fine but when I power it ON, it seems to be unable to boot up .. and goes into boot from network mode....

    Any ideas what I might be doing wrong here?

    it sounds like it isn't finding a bootable device.

    When first powering it on, try hitting ESC w/in the console.  This should give you a boot menu.  See if you can choose the hard drive.

    ok found the problem - when I looked in the 'General' settings tab I noticed the OS type was set to 32-bit .. no idea why ... setting it back to 64-bit OS X fixed the problem
