Hi,

I have a requirement to create the templates for WAS v6.1 & v7 installation/configuration in our VMWare Lab Manager v4.

I am looking for a straight forward steps/guide for this.

Thanks,
Rishi

For websphere you will need to get the installation package for either Linux or Windows to run in a VMware environment. You will install your base OS, then install and configure websphere to the point where you want to generate your template. Shut down the VM and convert it to a template.

Use the vCenter customization facilities to sysprep the image when it is deployed for Windows.

Any other specific questions just ask

Good Luck
