You can export customization specifications and save them as .xml files. To apply an exported specification to a virtual machine, import the .xml file using the Customization Specification Manager.


You must have at least one customization specification.


  1. From the vSphere Web Client Home inventory page, select Policies and Profiles > Customization Specification Manager.
  2. Right-click a specification and select Export.
  3. Select a location for the file and click Save.


The specification is saved as an .xml file to the location you specified.
