If you don't want to use the Content Onboarding Assistant, or if you already have a Content Library in your on-premises data center, you can use the Content Library to import content into your SDDC.

About this task

This method works for transferring OVF templates, ISO images, scripts, and other files.

For more information on creating content libraries, see Create a Library.


Before you import content, do the following:


  1. If you don't already have one, create a Content Library in your on-premises data center.
  2. Add your templates, ISO images, and scripts to the Content Library.

    All .vmtx templates are converted to OVF templates.

  3. Publish your content library.
  4. In your SDDC, create a content library that is subscribed to the content library you published from your on-premises data center. Content is synchronized from your on-premises data center to your SDDC in VMware Cloud on AWS.
