Creating an ovf – command-line style

October 4, 2012 by aubreykloppers

  1. Download and install “VMware OVF Tool” – 32/64 bit.
  2. cd to “c:\program files\vmware\vmware ovf tool”
  3. run ovftool:

>ovftool.exe “vi://10.0.0.10/TESTMACHINE/” c:\test.ovf

This tells ovftool to create a file on c:\ called test.ovf from the machine located on 10.0.0.10 named TESTMACHINE.

This will stop your OVF creation from timing out using the console.
