Hi all

I am trying to create a vApp Template with multi VMs, but I think is not possible with the vCloud v1.5.

i have seen this solution:

http://www.gabesvirtualworld.com/making-a-vcloud-multi-vm-vapp-template/

But I think this is only for 5.1, not for 1.5. Because I cannot import more than one VM.

I have create 8 vApp(one for each VM) and will create a ovf for each one. But what I will like to do is to create a vApp with all VMs to export to a ovf and have only one file will all VMs.

If this possible in the 1.5??

Thank You

Hi

Adding VMs to the vApp is easy. And yes you can use 1.5 or 5.1, work for both.

In that article it show how to. Maybe don't have all steps, but it shows.

You need to open the vApp, only in the open option(in your My Cloud) you have the option to add VMs, not on the vApp tab. Even in the vApp templates you cannot see/choose the add VMs option.

So like the article says, create a new vApp(you don't need to add nothing now) and next and finish.
After right click and choose the first option that is "open". When you are inside of the vApp you have an icon above to add VMs.

Then you can add one, or more VMs into that vApp. Don't forget that you need to configure the Network for all VMs.

Please try this and then share the results.

Thank You
