Thank you. I realize it is possible to export an ova from vCenter - my question was around why I would choose to do it that way vs using VMware studio or another method....
For example I know VMware studio creates a VAMI for your applaince, which just exporting from vCenter doesn't. It also creates CIM providers, which I'm not sure if an export from vCenter does. What else differentiates the process of just exporting from vCenter from other methods which may add more functionaility or maintainability to the appliance?
