Export VM as an OVF from VMware Fusion

Saturday, June 21, 2014 - by Keith A. Smith

I run VMware Fusion on mac for the rare occasion that I need to do something in windows. I never had a need to export any of my fusion VM's until recently, a colleague of mine wanted a copy of a VM I had. Unfortunately the Fusion GUI does not offer any way to export VM’s, so like with everything else when the GUI doesn’t offer a feature I head over to the command line (terminal in this case). After to digging around I found that this command works


./ovftool --acceptAllEulas /Users/admin/Documents/Virtual Machines.localized/IDM.vmwarevm/IDM.vmx 

~/Users/admin/Documents/IDM.ova
