Thread: Using Kiwi-NG to create VMWare VM ?

  1. #1

    Default Using Kiwi-NG to create VMWare VM ?

    Hi,

    Have searched to no avail. This would seem the most appropriate forum since Kiwi-NG fits under OBS, even when run locally. :-)

    I am trying to use Kiwi-NG on OpenLeap 15.2 (installed from OBS) to create "ready to run" virtual machines appliances for VMWare ESXi hosts.

    So would like either OVA (vmware flavour) or vmdk (that I can import into inventory) as an output from Kiwi.

    I have tried modifying the JeOS OpenLeap 15.2 example, but even when using the basic sample and specifying vmx / vmdk it is not compatible with VMWare.

    I am struggling to create a xml config based on the documentation I found at https://documentation.suse.com/kiwi/...i_color_en.pdf

    I only need a minimal VM as I will be installing just the VMWare tools and UPS software as a replacement for the VMA appliance that VMWare has discontinued.

    Does anyone have a working config.xml for a VMWare compatible output they care to share ? Obviously with users section removed.

    All (polite) suggestions appreciated - there is definitely a learning curve here !

    TIA,
    Ian

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    Maybe read here might help: https://osinside.github.io/kiwi/overview.html (and https://github.com/OSInside/kiwi-descriptions).

    This image should work (just remove the unused profiles)?
