I created an OVA for my team and put it up here (Note, this isn't the official release now offered by PANW):
Be sure to go Settings > M. Learning > and change the Expedition ML Address address to your VM's IP.
Then return to the Dashboad and Start the Agent.
Updated the OS and Expedition to 1.1.23.
There were a few new setting available with the upgrade, so a new directory /data was created and chowned to www-data.
There were resource alerts, so updated the /home/userSpace/environmentParameters.php file, so updated TotalCPUs to 2 and SparkRAM to 1592m. Moved image to S3. Note, image size has grown from allocated disk usage. I'll work on squeezing it down for the next release.
I created a new OVA that is now at 1.1.6. All Ubuntu updates have been applied as well.
Permissions for the /datastore and /PALogs should work for all cases now.
VM Image was set to Version 10, so should work for VMware 5.5.
Made a change to /etc/default/grub and /etc/network/interfaces to always use eth0 instead of ensXXX.
Updated /home/expedition/update-expedition.sh to make upgrades easier.
Updated Expedition to 1.0.106 and added all OS updates as well.
It's been upgraded to 1.0.104, but you'll likely need to update it once installed. So just:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install expedition-beta
...or just use the update-expedition.sh script I created in the home directory.
I also fixed a couple of other issues:
Fixed the /PALogs directory permissions and updated the Parquet Path in the Machine Learning section. This fixes the "Parquet Path" error on the Dashboard.
Changed the "mysqli.reconnect" value in /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini to "On" to fix the mysqli.reconnect error on the Dashboard.

if you look for my post above in this thread on 9-12-2018, I shared an OVA that was made for ESX 5.5 (HW Version 10) or higher. See this article for more detail on the VMWare Hardware Version compatibilty: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2007240

Ahh - cool - overlooked it - thanks!

As of april 2019:
Do not use the OVA's in these links.
The Expedition team will be publishing an updated OVA with a new download link this week.

yes from the main site:
there is a link for "Get the tool OVA"

Cannot deploy official OVA.
VMware ESXi, 6.0.0, 9239799
Issues detected with selected template. Details: - -1:-1:VALUE_ILLEGAL: No supported hardware versions among [vmx-12]; supported: [vmx-04, vmx-07, vmx-08, vmx-09, vmx-10, vmx-11].

seems that the official OVA was built for virtual hardware version 12 or higher since the ovf file has
see KB article https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1003746
ESX 6.0 is still supported by VMWare until March 12th, 2020
see VMWare announcment: https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/support/product-lifecycle-matrix.p...

I have seen this issue/message with installations of ESXi on older server hardware that was not compatible with the vmx-12 drivers.
i'll see what can options there are to support this.

Is https://paloaltonetworks.box.com/s/davuvo65k727nm7feuug0d783zo6fjx8 the latest download for the tool? I've been searching around the site for 20 minutes now and this is the only link I can find to download expedition.
There was a post on 4/15 from sjanita saying there is a link for "Get the tool OVA" on https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Expedition-Migration-Tool/ct-p/migration_tool but that just takes me to a listing of the expedition forums.

It seems like the new landing page has no simple "get the tool" button. I think it is temporary until they redesign the page and make a simpler way to download. but for now if the download link works for you; use it and update to the latest build.

As the creator of this thread, and the unofficial OVA's, you really should use the official OVA now available by the Expedition team. That being said, I am still updating my OVA for my team since I needed to support older VM instances and the OS/Expedition would be current upon instantiation. I will be moving them to S3 soon as I no longer have access to box. I will update the links once they are moved to their new home.
Again, not supported or recommended since there are official images now.

You are right that the dowload link was .not available for a while. But it is back now.
Also, I have some extra good news to bring you. We have created a installer Script that would set up an Expedition instance on a newly clean Ubuntu 16.04 Server VM.
So, there should be no issues for you to create a new image with your VMWare restrictions and, on that, run the script to get all the services requried for Expedition.
If everything goes smooth, we will post a message with the instructions during next week.
07-02-2019 11:51 AM
Do you know when this will be available?
07-04-2019 06:27 AM
I forgot about you in his thread.
Well, the script is already available, and you may not know, but you already have it if you downloaded an Expedition update recently.
We will make the script also available to download by itself, of course.
So, the script is in
You will find in that folder two files. One is initSetup.sh. The second is databases.tgz
You need them both.

Don't seem the script finishes successfully.
