Installing an image as VM in VMware ESXi 5.5

Hello Experts,

Can someone let me know if its possible to install / run an image file on a VM in the same way it's possible to run an Windows ISO image on VM?

The image I have is image_rbt_shm_5_5_1_n5_x86_64.img. The image full description is as follows:

SteelCentral Controller for the SMC 9000, 8650, and Virtual SMC (8551) on ESX
Version 5.5.1 (64-bit)

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Andrew,

I hope is well.

The link you suggested is where I got the image from. However, I don't see an equivalent OVA version that I can import. Can you let me know where about's you see the OVA?
Hi Andrew,

I've got it. I was on the page you suggested.

Thanks again
Thanks again Andrew
