How to add an exported virtual server (ovf) from ESX 3.5 and import it to ESX 4.1 with vCentre
Posted on 2010-11-22
After Virtual Appliance->Export in ESX 3.5, an .ovf file and a vmdk file is created. I couldn't find any way to add to inventory on a ESX 4.1 host with vCentre.
There is no .vmx file for me to right-click add to inventory as found in some instructions.
Do I have to use VMware vCenter Converter Standalone if I have vCenter? I have tried to use ovftool, but I have encountered errors like no manifest file found. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
