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.

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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