    Default Installing Zimbra on ESXi

    I'm trying to install the Zimbra appliance onto a VSXi server through the VMware vSphere Client running on a Windows 7 Workstation

    The VSXi server is well established here and I'm in fact using this forum using an Ubuntu VM installed there as a test

    My problem is that the process for establishing a VM of Zimbra on VSXI requires a .ovi file (that's the type of download) to load and there seems to be no option for this

    Any suggestions team?

    I just deployed the ova to my ESXi server yesterday. I used the vSphere client and selected "Deploy OVF template". In my case I uploaded the appliance to my ESXi host and got the URL of the appliance by going to the ESXi host webpage, browse data store, find the file and did a "copy link location" From there you can paste that into the location of the template and should be good to go.

    Hope that helps out a bit!

    OK - sorted - in my case I loaded the appliance to a mapped drive from my desktop on which the Vshere client runs

    Now to read the manual as I set it up -all hints welcome
