I am looking for a way to deploy a windows VM from an ova package and have it contain things like the ip address et
However now i would like to use the import-vapp procedure in powercli 5.8 and just populate the information then in the vm
any ideas how to do this ? How can i create the ova in a way that the deployment will ask me for the ip address / vm name etc / username and password ?
Or is there a way to do this after the ova is deployed ?
Thanks for any help
Your OVA/OVF needs to be created where these values are configured through properties.
You can then use the Get-OvfConfiguration to find these properties and populate the hash table that is returned.
The hash table can be passed on the OvfConfiguration parameter on the Import-VApp cmdlet.
