- Configure a vSphere VM
This topic provides an example of using the Virtual Machine Configuration wizard to set up the virtual machine configuration for a vSphere virtual machine.
This example assumes that you have used the VMware vSphere Client to set up the virtual machine as explained in Set up a vSphere VM for Install Capture or all of the following are true:
Citrix recommends that you use a dedicated vSphere user account whose password is set to never expire rather than your standard domain account. If this is your domain account, enter your domain-qualified user name (for example, domain\user or firstname.lastname@example.org).
This should be a dedicated virtual machine for use with Install Capture run from this AppDNA client.
The wizard performs a series of checks and then opens the virtual machine in the console. This may take a few minutes, particularly if the guest OS needs to be started. If you did not perform the virtual machine setup steps, perform them in virtual machine when it opens in the console. You will have an opportunity to take another snapshot at the end of the wizard.
For more information about this step and instructions for finding out the IP address of the virtual machine, see Virtual Machine Connection.
This closes the wizard and returns you to the Install Capture page in the Settings dialog box, where you should now see the virtual machine configuration.
The virtual machine configuration now appears in the list of virtual machine configurations on the Install Capture tab in the Import Applications screen.
