    Build a custom OS based VM from an existing OVF

    amitda Lurker

      In our lab, we have been creating our own OVFs that include a customized OS (Linux based) and an already deployed application on top.

      We have been using the vCenter client in order to create the OVFs.


      The OS, middleware and application are meshed together as the OVF is an already installed application where the user is asked to configure upon OVF deployment.

      The application is not packaged in a standard mechanism.


      Is there an option create the same VM from an already existing one?

      Can I add a custom OS profile from an existing VM? Is the standard OS ISO a must?
