Generating a Virtual Appliance with VMware

To build a VMware platform Virtual Appliance (VAPP), do the following:

Creating new virtual machines:

Set a name to identify the deployment, choose the VMware engine and the operating system version:

Choose the destination disk

CPU: 1

Memory: 4096 MB

Hard disk: 40 GB

Thin provisioned hard disk

Network adapter:

OPLON R10 Guest OS CentOS 8.2004 (64-bit) Compatibility ESXi 6.7 and later 40GB /

Power on

Disable Security policy (CentOS 7 only)

Poweroff, New1000

Change the CD/DVD assignment to Host Device

Perform temporary setups for minimum VAPP settings

Set up a network that can be regrouped on the Internet:

Run the start and set the following network values:

Set up as a manual OPLON_VAPP_creation_eng.docx

Bring networking values back to neutral

Poweroff

With the Virtual Appliance turned off change the network setting

Export and import virtual appliances such as .ova with batches e.g.:

:
set VMNAME=OPLON_R10_CentOS8_2004_VM7_0
set SOURCE_BOX=vi://root@192.168.40.18/%VMNAME%
: se si vuole trasferire in ova
set TARGET_LOCAL_VMNAME=C:\work1\share\LBLVAPP_010_000_000\OSReleased\Masters\%VMNAME%_MASTER.ova

: se si vuole trasferire in ovf
:set TARGET_LOCAL_VMNAME=C:\work1\share\LBLVAPP_009_009_011\OSReleased\CentOS

# Export ovf o ova
