yes, I did , and it works for me fine.
However , I'm looking for a way to customize the installation process ( or run any command on unsupported console ) to import my appliance ( that was previously exported and compressed) directly from the server itself. I try to simplify the process ( eliminate the need for vi install and so on...)
I plan to use the HOST computer for my appliance only, thus no ESXi future configuration is required ( at least in simple install model that I'm looking).
no, I don't think so.
I try to import existed virtual appliance and not perform p2v or v2v process.
Again, my goal is to import virtual appliance to ESXi from the console itself! as a part of single installation process.
vmware converter is not only designed for p2v and v2v processes but also for importing a virtual applicances and for vcb restore operation. I think the operation that you want do also concern in opening firewall ports (shall you use samba? or cifs share?)
Hi, I think that you can do this via the RCLI, checkout the RCLI Install and reference guide. You say that you want to finish the install and import of this appliance without leaving the console, so how are you going to get access to where the applicance is storage wise? Hows it connected?
