Verify that you have a removable media containing exported virtual machine files.
- Run the following command to deploy the VM from the removable media to a vCenter Server.
ovftool -ds=DATASTORE_NAME VM_FQDN.ova "vi://root@VC_IP/?ip=HOST_IP"Note:
Do not power on the imported VM.
- In the vSphere Web Client, drag the VM to the tenant resource pool.
- Import vApp from vCenter Server into vCloud Director. For more information, see the Import a Virtual Machine from vCenter topic in the vCloud API Programming Guide for Service Providers.
