i tried the Converter tool, but the outcome was only a VMDK File.
My VMWare Admin consists an OVA or OVF File for the Expedition Server.
So it would be very nice to know when it is planned to release Expedition as OVA.
We have multiple users that have converted the VM into an OVF/OVA with no problems.
Soon we will release the version 1.1.0 of Expedition. We will make an effort to offer a new OVA/OVF version of it already updated to 1.1.0 and publish it as well.
We do not have a specific date for this yet.
thank you for the Quick Response.
I´m not a VMWare Admin, and maybe i have problems with the handling of the tool.
Is there a short introduction, how i can create a OVA File?
There is documentation on the link provided above, in the section called "Documentation"
This will lead you to following documentation link: https://docs.vmware.com/en/vCenter-Converter-Standalone/6.2/com.vmware.convsa.guide/GUID-C83AC3F9-48...
Note: We are not VMWare Admins either, but users of the VMWare products to offer Expedition as a virtual machine.
Right idea...wrong tool. You need the OVFTOOL - the Converter will not produce the OVF.
Here's the example usage:
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware OVF Tool>ovftool.exe -h examples
ovftool c:\vms\my_vm.vmx c:\ovfs\my_vapp.ovf
(.vmx file to .ovf file. Result files will be c:\ovfs\my_vapp.[ovf|vmdk])
Here's my output:
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware OVF Tool>ovftool.exe C:\tmp\vm\Expedition\ExpeditionVM.vmx C:\tmp\vm\ovf\Expedition.OVF
Opening VMX source: C:\tmp\vm\Expedition\ExpeditionVM.vmx
Opening OVF target: C:\tmp\vm\ovf\Expedition.OVF
Writing OVF package: C:\tmp\vm\ovf\Expedition.OVF
