Deploying an OVF template on an ESX 3.5 or ESXi 3.5 Server
You can deploy an OVF template that contains Symantec Messaging Gateway Virtual Edition on a VMware ESX Server 3.5 or VMWare ESXi Server 3.5. An OVF template is a virtual machine that includes the software you plan to run on the machine.
To use an OVF template to install Symantec Messaging Gateway on an ESX 3.5 or ESXi 3.5 Server, use the VMware vCenter Converter to import the OVF template.
The VMware vCenter Converter is available on the VMware Web site. The steps described here are based on using Version 4.0.1, build 161434 of the VMware vCenter Converter on an ESX 3.5, update 4 Server. Note that these instructions may vary based on the version and build of the converter that you use. Version 3.x converters do not support OVF templates. Refer to your VMware documentation for more information about the VMware vCenter Converter. You can download the converter here:
