Ova Download Vmware Virtual Machine Rating: 7,3/10 1852 reviews
  • This module can be used to deploy a VMware VM from an OVF or OVA file

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • pyvmomi

Jul 10, 2017  VirtualBox and VMware use different virtual machine formats, but each supports the standard Open Virtualization Format. Convert your existing virtual machine to OVF or OVA and you’ll be able to import it into another virtual machine program. Unfortunately, this may not always work perfectly, as VirtualBox and VMware both seem to use slightly.

ParameterChoices/DefaultsComments
allow_duplicates
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not to allow duplicate VM names. ESXi allows duplicates, vCenter may not.
cluster

string
Default:
Datastore to deploy to.
You can also specify datastore storage cluster. version_added: 2.9

  • monolithicFlat
fail_on_spec_warnings
boolean
    Choices:

    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Force the given properties to be inserted into an OVF Environment and injected through VMware Tools.
name

Virtual machine names in vCenter are not necessarily unique, which may be problematic.
networksDefault:
{'VM Network': 'VM Network'}
key: value mapping of OVF network name, to the vCenter network name.
ovf
Path to OVF or OVA file to deploy.
password
string
The password of the vSphere vCenter or ESXi server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable VMWARE_PASSWORD will be used instead.
Environment variable support added in Ansible 2.6.
port
integer
Default:
443
The port number of the vSphere vCenter or ESXi server.

Environment variable support added in Ansible 2.6.
power_on
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not to power on the virtual machine after creation.
properties
The assignment of values to the properties found in the OVF as key value pairs.
proxy_host
added in 2.9
Address of a proxy that will receive all HTTPS requests and relay them.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable VMWARE_PROXY_HOST will be used instead.

username
string
The username of the vSphere vCenter or ESXi server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable VMWARE_USER will be used instead.
Environment variable support added in Ansible 2.6.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
Allows connection when SSL certificates are not valid. Set to false when certificates are not trusted.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable VMWARE_VALIDATE_CERTS will be used instead.

An OVF package captures the state of a virtual machine or vApp into a self-contained package. The disk files are stored in a compressed, sparse format.

Procedure

In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to a virtual machine or vApp and select Export OVF Template from the All vCenter Actions menu.

If you type OvfLib for a new OVF folder, the following files might be created:

2

In the Export OVF Template dialog, type the Name of the template.

For example, type MyVm.

When exporting an OVF template with a name that contains asterisk (*) characters, those characters turn into underscore characters (_).

3

Click Choose to browse to the folder location where you want to save the template.

Select Overwrite existing files if you wish to overwrite files with the same name on your desktop.

5

In the Format field, determine how you want to store the files.

Select Folder of files (OVF) to store the OVF template as a set of files (.ovf, .vmdk, and .mf) This format is optimal if you plan to publish the OVF files on a Web server or image library. The package can be imported, for example, into the vSphere Web Client by publishing the URL to the .ovf file.

Select Single file (OVA) to package the OVF template into a single .ova file. This might be convenient to distribute the OVF package as a single file if it needs to be explicitly downloaded from a Web site or moved around using a USB key.

In the Annotation field, type a description for the virtual machine.

7

Select the Enable advanced options checkbox if you want to include additional information or configurations in the exported template.

The advanced settings include information about the BIOS UUID, MAC addresses, boot order, PCI Slot numbers, and configuration settings used by other applications, such as VMware vShield.

Click OK.

If you type C:NewFolderOvfLib for a new OVF folder, the following files might be created:

C:NewFolderOvfLibMyVmMyVm.ovfI

C:NewFolderOvfLibMyVm.mf

C:NewFolderOvfLibMyVm-disk1.vmdk

If you choose to export into the OVA format, and type MyVm, the file C:MyVm.ova is created.
