Vmware OVF Export

When export a VM as OVF template, there is a checkbox on the bottom of the screen as shown on the screenshot below:

Many years ago, if you had a floppy image or CDROM ISO attached to the VM, OVF Export would complete, but the import would fail, because the ISO/floppy image was attached, so VMware created this option.

BUT it's not good practice to keep ISOS or Floppy images attached to VMs, because it can and sometimes stops vMotion, or HA events, so always disconnect when finished.

If you tick that option, the Export also takes longer....
