After you install or upgrade VMware Tools, you can add the updated vApp to your catalog.

You do not need to stop the vApp before you add it to a catalog. If you add a running vApp to a catalog, the memory state of running virtual machines is preserved and the added vApp is enabled for network fencing.


  1. Select the vApp, right-click, and select Add vApp to Catalog.
  2. Select the vApp template, right-click, and select Properties.
  3. Select Customize VM Settings or Make Identical Copy.
  4. (Optional) Delete any previous versions of the vApp template.
