Creating your own VGP

This topic provides instructions for creating your own Virtual Guest Package (VGP).

To create your own VGP

  1. Create an XML file that contains configuration information for the new virtual machine (VM).
    This file is based on the schema shown in Virtual Guest Package schema. Before using the schema, familiarize yourself with the concepts described in Using the schemas - Backward compatibility and validation.
    Here are some sample VGP files for different environments. Following each sample, there is a section containing information about various settings:
  2. After you have created the VGP XML file, run the createVirtualGuestPackage command to create the VGP.
    For example:

    Virtualization createVirtualGuestPackage "//host/nsh-path/vgp-vmware.xml"

    This command returns the ID of the newly created VGP (in this case 1).
    Store this ID, because you will need it later to retrieve the contents of the VGP.
