I have created a VM template using VCenter in my ESX server.

I want to export this template and store it in the file system and then import it to a different ESX server.

Is this doable?

Using OVF format is one option, but is there a different approach? VMWare Convertor can help? If so does it expose a SDK so I can do some automation?
