After you create a datacenter and add a clustered host enabled with DRS 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 cluster enabled with DRS is selected in the inventory.

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


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


You can allocate CPU and memory resources for the new vApp using shares, reservations, and limits.


Before you deploy the vApp, you can review the vApp settings.
