Install a VM-Series firewall on VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi)

To install a VM-Series firewall you must have access to the Open Virtualization Alliance format (OVA) template. Use the auth code you received in your order fulfillment email to register your VM-Series firewall and download the OVA template. The OVA template is a zip archive that contains three types of files:
  • .mf: OVF manifest file that contains the SHA-1 digests of individual files in the package
  • .ovf: OVF descriptor file that contains all metadata for the package and its contents
  • .vmdk: Virtual disk image file that contains the virtualized version of the firewall
Complete the following tasks to install and configure the VM-Series firewall on ESXi.
