Currently, you are limited in the ways you can create virtual machines because of permissions restrictions in your SDDC.

You can create a VM by:

  • Upload an ISO image, .vmtx template, OVA template, or OVF template directly to the workloadDatastore in your SDDC.

  • Using an ISO image from a Content Library.

  • Using an OVF template from a Content Library.

  • Deploying an OVF or OVA template from your client machine or from a URL.

  • Using a .vmtx template imported into your SDDC using the Content Onboarding Assistant

At the moment, you can't:

  • Attach a client-side ISO image to a VM to install the operating system.
