      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).
