Short answer – Don’t.
We have a vApp that is ~2 TB, which is made up of north of 100 files. When using the web client to export the vApp to an OVF template, both IE and Firefox appear to have attempted to spawn tabs to initiate download of all the files at once. This resulted in the Web Client crashing and the OVF export failing. So don’t try that.
Instead, try this, using the VMware PowerCLI 6.5:
Connect-VIServer -Server <IP_Address_of_vCenter_Server>
Get-VApp - Name <Name_of_vApp> | Export-VApp -Destination "F:\Destination_external_HDD"
These are the notes – I hope to flesh them out later.
Definition of Technical Humility
TH= HS-A + HS-D +WtAI
Technical Humility = Honest Self-Assessment + Healthy Self-Doubt + Willingness to Admit Ignorance
Cake Tricky No way
Willingness to Admit Ignorance – The hardest for me, but the biggest payoff. Continues to require effort.
Builds trust with team members
Speeds up output
Can lead to learning (depending on team)
Reduces personal stress
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools – Can enhance interactions between team members
Responding to change over following a plan – Favors responsiveness to the project’s needs over my personal plan.
