As an alternative to using the vSphere client to deploy the VMware Tunnel OVA file, you can use a PowerShell script. The PowerShell method provides settings validation checks to prevent errors during deployment.

The PowerShell method requires adding your VMware Tunnel configuration settings to the .ini template and running the script. When the script runs, it prompts the user for necessary authentication to appliance root user, REST API (admin UI), AirWatch Administrator, optional outbound proxy password, and vCenter. Each password is then validated so you can easily troubleshoot why the deployment failed.

PowerShell enables you to deploy multiple instances of VMware Tunnel quickly and easily. Use the same .ini template to run the script multiple times.
