    Export a VM as an .OVF

    DZ1 Hot Shot

      I want to create a script that will automatically export a VM in vSphere 4 to an .OVF file.  I have been searching through the commads and I see a command for Export-VApp, but since the VMs are not virtually appliances I don't know if I can use that command.  I have tried using "help *ovf*", but that only brings up a command to Import an OVF.

       

      I also checked Set-VM, thinking that you could convert a VM to a VApp, similair to how you can use "-ToTemplate" to change a VM to a template, but I didn't see anything there.  If anyone has dealt with this before, please help me out.
