Deploy Oracle VitualBox apps in Esxi VSphere

Use Oracle VitualBox apps in VSphere



After spending close to 1 month on this trivial issue finally I got to work this. I am listing the steps to deploy an Oracle VM on Esxi VSphere

Step 1- Convert Esxi vpshere .ova file to .ovf format, which is an Oracle Virtual Box format.

I used linux tar utility to get the output file in ovf format.

tar xvf SomeVMImage.ova

Step 2- Make these changes before deploying oracle VBox .ovf file in VSphere 
a. Open the .ovf file in text editor ( I used Notepad++)

And, replace the below line :


with this


b. To avoid the error message : Line 66: OVF hardware element ‘ResourceType’ with instance ID ‘5’: No support for the virtual hardware device type ’20’In the same file, modify the item Instance 5:


<rasd:Description>SATA Controller</rasd:Description>

With this

<rasd:Description>SCSI Controller</rasd:Description>

For me this worked like a breeze, and I was able to deploy Oracle VM into ESXI.
