Help Topic: Importing a Non-Managed Virtual Machine as a Template
The instructions, beginning with Step 4:
4 Select the type of source virtual machine.
Click A GSX Server or Workstation virtual machine. /bClick Next.
Do not correspond to the dialogs presented by the wizard.
After clicking "Next" in Step 3, the dialog for "Source virtual machine" has only two options:
\- A virtual machine in the VMware VirtualCenter Inventory.
\- A virtual machine on a local file system that is not in the VMware VirtualCenter Inventory.
If I select the second option, the next dialog that is presented (Virtual Machine Configuration File) has the "Browse" button disabled.
Now for the question part:
How do I import a set of .vmtx / .vmtd files into VC? The files reside on the SAN (VC is not directly connected to SAN).
The template was created during a prior installation of VC. We have since reinstalled (and blew away the data in the database).
