Using Terraform to Deploy the VMware Nested ESXi Appliance

Share on:

With the addition of OVF/OVA customized properties in Terraform, I figured I would put together a few runbooks for appliances to deploy. This post will cover the details deploy the Nested ESXi Appliance.


Execute the Runbook

  • The script is pretty straight forward, you will need to download the Appliance OVA to a local directory and fill in the appropriate variables on the configuration file. Terraform also supports a Remote OVF, but due to performance reasons I have find local to work better.


Im loving all the new pieces of automation that are coming out to help simplify deployments.
