Expedition VMWare OVF File

L2 Linker

Anyone know if they've build an OVF file type for the Expedition Tool like has been done with the other Migration Tools?

I know this is dated now but I wanted to add my 2-cents on this so that maybe it can be of help to others. 


I had the expedition working great in my Macbook using fusion. That deployment was easy becuase the download came as a .vmarevm file ready to launch. I opened it up in fusion and made sure it booted and worked as designed. Then I shut it down and went to the Fusion Menu - File and selected export to ovf option. Then when in the dialog choose to create a single OVA file and let it do its thing... be patient it takes a bit.  I'm sure the same thing is possible from vmware workstation.


PS NOTE: my export was a version VM12 and my vSphere is only 6.0 so at first it failed. I had to go back into fusion, modify the compatibility to version 11, then re export. Then it imported fine.


After that I opened the vsphere web-client and imported it just as any other ova. Worked like a champ. 


Regards, I hope it helps.

Just the facts mam... just the facts
