    The New vApp from Content Library into Host or Cluster wizard opens.

  4. Enter a name and select a location for the vApp, and click Next.
  5. On the Select a resource page, select a host, a cluster, a resource pool, or a vApp to deploy the vApp to.
  6. On the Review details page, verify the template details and click Next.
  7. Select disk format and a storage resource for the vApp.
  8. On the Customize template page, you can customize the deployment properties for the vApp.
  9. On the Ready to Complete page, review the configurations you made for the vApp, and click Finish.


A new task for creating the vApp appears in the Recent Tasks pane. After the task is complete, the new vApp is created.
