OVA deployment using ovftool

    Hello everyone,

    I hope somebody can help me with a solution to my problem. I have an OVA created with vboxmanage and I want to deploy that OVA on ESXi machine, but with static IP, gateway and netmask. The issue is that the machine is deployed, but without those 3 variables. The output is like this:

    Task Completed
    Warning:
    - OVF property with key: 'gateway' does not exists.
    - OVF property with key: 'ip' does not exists.
    - OVF property with key: 'netmask' does not exists.

    Can I edit the .ovf file of the machine (and how) so the ovftool can setup static network settings?

    Thank you!
