When you deploy an OVF or OVA template, you provide a unique name for the virtual machine or vApp. The name can contain up to 80 characters. You can select a datacenter or folder location for the virtual machine.


  1. (Optional) : Specify the name that the virtual machine or vApp will have when it is deployed at the target location.

    The name defaults to the selected template. If you change the default name, it must be unique within each vCenter Server virtual machine folder.

  2. Select or search for a datacenter or folder for the virtual machine or vApp.

    The default location is based on where you started the wizard. For example, if you started the wizard from a datastore, that datastore is preselected.

  3. Click Next.
