You must compress the source virtual machine package in TAR (.tar) format so that end users can easily download the virtual machine. A virtual machine package (sometimes called a bundle) includes all of the virtual machine files that are required to run a virtual machine.

Procedure

  1. If the source virtual machine is running, shut it down.
  2. In Fusion Pro or Workstation Pro, navigate to the source virtual machine.
  3. Select File > Export to TAR and export the source virtual machine package to a TAR file.

    Remove any spaces from the TAR file name. Removing spaces from the file name can make it easier to connect to the download URL for the virtual machine.

  4. Export the TAR file to your Horizon FLEX virtual machine packages download folder.

What to do next

Register the source virtual machine with the Horizon FLEX Policy Server. See Register a Source Virtual Machine with the Horizon FLEX Policy Server.
