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

You can create a vApp under the following conditions.

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

A DRS-enabled cluster is selected in the inventory.

You can create vApps on folders, standalone hosts, resource pools, DRS-enabled clusters, and within other vApps.


The New vApp wizard allows you to create a vApp.


The name that you enter is the vApp display name that appears in the inventory.


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


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


The Ready to Complete page lets you review the vApp configuration.
