  • The user interface upload requires an OVA file or a virtual disk file. You can only upload one file and an OVA file can have multiple disks, so this is the recommended method. Abiquo supports OVA files exported from hypervisors, e.g. VMware ESXi. If you upload a virtual disk file, you must edit the template to add more disks. And you will need to know the disk format and deployed size. If it is an ISO file, you can use it to install an operating system or software. You can also add an extra hard disk for the install.
  • The manual upload can be used for very large templates with one or more disks. It requires the virtual disk file(s) and an OVF definition. See OVF Reference. and Guest operating system definition for VMware
  • In private cloud, when you capture a VM that was created outside of Abiquo, its template is NOT automatically stored in the Apps library. To store the template, create an Abiquo instance template.
