OVA exports

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Old UNIX geek here, but new to VMWare.

We have installed a system running ESXi 6.7, we use it to export VOIP appliances to

VMWare, one customer is having trouble with nvram file in ova image. To export the

images we use ovftool 4.2.0.

I am looking for pointers to exclude nvram file from ova file. Any help will be greatly

appreciated.

Thanks

For the sake of completeness, I'm going to close this issue.

Fixed the problem adding code to python script used to export VM,

added code untar the image, remove nvram file and any reference

to it from ovf file and it worked as expected.

Hi,

I know this is old, but then again:

  • --noDisks : Disable disk conversion.
  • --noImageFiles : Do not include image files in destination.
  • --noNvramFile : Do not include nvram file in destination.

I think the last one will fit. 

cheers
