You can export customization specifications and save them as .xml files. To apply an exported specification to a virtual machine, import the .xml file using the Customization Specification Manager.

Before you begin, you must have at least one customization specification.


In the vSphere Client, select View > Management > Customization Specifications Manager.


In the Customization Specification Manager, right-click a specification and select Export.


In the Save As dialog, enter a file name and location.


Click Save.

The specification is saved as an .xml file to the location you specified.
