If you don't want to create a vApp based on a vApp template, you can create a new vApp using virtual machines from vApp templates, new virtual machines, or a combination of both.

You are at least a vApp author.


When you create a new vApp, you must provide some basic information.


You can search your catalogs for virtual machines to add to the vApp or add new, blank virtual machines.


Select the virtual datacenter (vDC) in which this vApp is stored and runs when it's started. Name each virtual machine and select the network to which you want it to connect. You can configure additional properties for virtual machines after you complete the wizard.


You can determine how the vApp, its virtual machines, and its networks connect to the organization's networks.
