From vCloud Connector, you can deploy a running instance of a vApp from a vApp template that is on a vCloud Director cloud.

vCloud Connector is open.


In the Browser panel on the left, expand the Clouds tree and select the cloud that contains the template you want to deploy.

The Inventory panel displays all the contents of the cloud. You can narrow the results by using Search or by expanding the cloud hierarchy further in the Browser panel and selecting a sub-folder.


Click the Templates tab in the Inventory panel.


Select the template that you want to deploy, then click the Deploy icon at the top of the panel.


In the Deploy Wizard, type a name and description for the vApp, then click Next.


Use only ASCII characters in the name. Names with non-ASCII characters do not display correctly. Also, the following characters are not allowed in the name: % . # & < >


Select a virtual datacenter in which to store the vApp.


Select a network for the vApp, then click Next.


Select the Power on deployed entity check box to automatically power on the vApp after it is deployed.


In the Ready to complete page, review your selections, then click Finish.

To monitor the progress of your deployment, see the Tasks panel on the right. You may need to refresh your screen to see the deployed vApp.


All EULAs are accepted automatically by vCloud Connector during the deployment process.
