After you create a datacenter and add a clustered DRS-enabled host to your vCenter Server system, you can create a vApp.

You may create a new vApp under the following conditions:

A host is selected in the inventory that is running ESX 3.0 or greater.

A DRS-enabled cluster is selected in the inventory.

vApps can be created on folders, hosts, resource pools, DRS-enabled clusters, and within other vApps.


The New vApp wizard allows you to create a new vApp.


The name you enter is used as the vApp’s display name in the inventory.


The destination is the host, cluster, resource pool, or vApp on which the vApp will run.


Determine how much CPU and memory should be allocated for the vApp.


The Ready to Complete page enables you to review the vApp’s configuration.
