Help with ovftool syntax
Posted on 2013-06-30
I am trying something pretty basic, i.e retrieving a virtual machine from ESXI5.1 host into an OVA file.
I have installed the OVF tool (wintel box)
My ESXI box lives on 192.168.100.100
MY VM name is DemoVM
Here is the command I am attempting:
ovftool.exe "vi://username:email@example.com:443/DemoVM" "C:\VM-Backup\Demo-W7-VM.ova"
but the tool complains about "the locator not referring to an object". I guess I have to insert the "datacenter" name, whatever it is...
Can you help me here finding out the right syntax ? Thanks !
