You can populate a vApp with objects by creating a new virtual machine, resource pool, or child vApp within the vApp. Alternatively, you can add an existing object from the inventory, such as a virtual machine or another vApp, to the vApp.

Procedure

Select your task.
  • Create an object inside a vApp.

    • Right-click a vApp in the inventory, and select New Virtual Machine to create a new virtual machine within the vApp.

    • Right-click a vApp in the inventory, and select New Child vApp to create a child vApp inside the vApp.

    • Right-click a vApp in the inventory, and select New Resource Pool to create a new resource pool within the vApp.

    • Right-click a vApp in the inventory, and select Deploy OVF Template to deploy an OVF template and add the corresponding virtual machine to the selected vApp.

  • Add an existing object to a vApp.

    1. Navigate to an object in the inventory.

    2. Drag the object to the destination vApp.

    3. Release the mouse button.

      If the move is not permitted, the object is not added to the vApp.

Results

The new object is now a part of the vApp in the vApp inventory.
