After you install or upgrade VMware Tools, you can add the updated vApp to your catalog.

About this task

You do not need to stop the vApp before you add it to a catalog. If you add a running vApp to a catalog, the memory state of running virtual machines is preserved and the added vApp is enabled for network fencing.


  1. Select the vApp, right-click, and select Add vApp to Catalog.
  2. Select the vApp template, right-click, and select Properties.
  3. Select Customize VM Settings or Make Identical Copy.
  4. (Optional) Delete any previous versions of the vApp template.
