Convert Veritas Images to VMs and then to OVF (bulk)

This involves using backup images by Veritas using System Recovery 18.


There are several Veritas backups that are required to be converted to ESXi 6.5 VMs and then exported as OVFs

The overall process tried is to convert one backup image to a VMDK and then add it to a new VM, boot it up and then shut it down and export as in OVF format.
This takes a long time.

Are there any options in Veritas System Recovery 18 to script the process to get the backup images to a VM?

Once VMDKs are added to VM on the ESXi Server, is there an option in OVFtool to convert all the VMs to the OVFs?

What we basically need is a batch setup to convert Veritas images to VMDKs and added to VMs and then to OVFs

Thanks
