    Accepted Solution

    Export an OVF is a function of the vSphere Client.

    Select a Virtual Machine (make sure it's OFF)

    Select File > Export > Export OVF Template

    (the VM Must be OFF).

    You can also export and copy with VMware Converter, see here (different program), this also allows you to copy whilst the Virtual Machine is ON.
