Prop:'vami.hostname.VMwarevCenterLogInsight'='vrli01' Generic OVF Tool options are visible with the following command-ovftool.exe -help. Which will output the following-Usage: ovftool options where: Source URL locator to an OVF package, VMX file, or virtual machine in vCenter or on ESX Server. OVF Tool 4.4 coincides with the release of vSphere 7.0 and supports other products as well, such as vCloud Director. VMware OVF Tool is a command-line utility that allows you to import and export OVF packages to and from virtual machines running on VMware virtualization platforms. OVF Tool gets called internally by many VMware products. Deploy OVF only works for vCenter 6.5 due to removal of dependency on Client Integration Plugin from vSphere Client (HTML5). For now, you can only deploy OVF on a host and by only using OVF URL. Also, advanced customizations are not available in the wizard yet. OVF is a file format that allows for exchange of virtual appliances across products and platforms. The OVF format offers the following advantages: OVF files are compressed, allowing for faster downloads. The vSphere Client/Web Client validates an OVF file before importing it, and ensures that it is compatible with the intended destination server. Download OVF tool When you go to the VMware website downloads menu and select OVF tool, the Windows version displays for you to download. To use another version (for example, Mac or Linux), go to the main Downloads page and search for “ovf tool”.

AT&T Cybersecurity provides a download package, which contains the VMware Open Virtualization Format (OVF) template that you can import and deploy the USM Anywhere Sensor on a VMware ESXi host.

Important: If you are using VMware ESXi 5.1 through 6.0, the VMware vSphere Desktop Client is required for deployment of the USM Anywhere Sensor OVF. You cannot use the VMware vSphere Web Client interface for the sensor deployment.

If you are using VMware ESX 6.5, you must have build 7388607 or later. Earlier builds have an issue with the OVF tools that will cause the sensor OVF deployment to fail.

If the OVF package is invalid and can't be deployed, and you get a SHA256 Error message, see The OVF Package Is Invalid and Cannot Be Deployed - SHA256 Error for more information.

Warning: The VMware Sensor requires all five Network Interface Cards (NICs) to be enabled. The USM Anywhere update will fail if not all five NICs are associated to some network (active or inactive).

See Configure Network Interfaces for On-Premises Sensors for more information about these interfaces.

Depending on your version of ESXi, use one of these procedures to import the sensor OVF and create the USM Anywhere Sensor virtual machine (VM).

VMware ESXi 5.1 Through 6.0

This procedure describes the vSphere client. If you are using vCenter to manage the ESXi host (5.1 through 6.0), refer to the documentation provided by VMware and extrapolate from this procedure.

To import the OVF and deploy the USM Anywhere Sensor VM

  1. Download the VMware OVF package provided by AT&T Cybersecurity.

    Use this link to download the USM Anywhere Sensor package in.zip format:

    Note: This download can take 30 minutes or more.

  2. Extract the usm-sensor-vmware.zip package to any folder on the machine where you are using the vSphere client.

    It should extract these four files:

    • deploy_config.iso
    • USM_sensor-node.ovf
    • USM-disk1.vmdk
    • USM.mf
  3. Open the vSphere client and select File > Deploy OVF Template.

    This opens the Deploy OVF Template wizard.

  4. Browse to the folder where you extracted the files, select the OVF package (USM_sensor-node.ovf), and click Next.

  5. Click Next for each of the wizard panels:

    Note: You do not need to change the default settings unless you want to change the default sensor name.

    • OVF Template Details
    • Name and Location
    • Disk Format
    • Network Mapping
  6. On the Ready to Complete panel, select Power on after deployment and click Finish.

    Deployment of the virtual image takes several minutes. As the deployment progresses and then completes, the vSphere client displays a series of messages:

    Deploying USM Anywhere Sensor Node

    Deploying disk 1 of 2 from: (File Location)

    Deploying disk 2 of 2 from: (File Location)

    Completed Successfully

    Note: If you chose a different name for your USM Anywhere Sensor, that name appears in the first message instead of the default name.

  7. Click Close.

  8. Connect to the console of the USM Anywhere Sensor:

    • Select the new VM from the Inventory list in the vSphere client.
    • In the toolbar, click the Console icon.

The USM Anywhere Sensor screen provides the initial login password to use when you complete the sensor setup. It also displays the URL that you use to access USM Anywhere and complete the sensor registration and connection.

VMware ESXi 6.5

The following procedure describes the standard VMware ESXi Embedded Host Client, which is a native HTML and JavaScript application served directly from your ESXi host. Before you begin this procedure, make sure that your ESXi 6.5 host is updated to build 7388607 or later and that the web client is updated to build 7119706 or later. Refer to these VMware online resources for the latest download files and information:

  • VMware ESXi Patch Tracker: https://esxi-patches.v-front.de/ESXi-6.5.0.html
  • VMware ESXi Embedded Host Client: https://labs.vmware.com/flings/esxi-embedded-host-client

If you are using vCenter to manage your VMware ESXi hosts and using the vSphere web client, refer to the documentation provided by VMware and extrapolate from this procedure.

To load the OVF and deploy the USM Anywhere Sensor VM

  1. Download the VMware OVF package provided by AT&T Cybersecurity.

    Use this link to download the USM Anywhere Sensor package in.zip format:

    Note: This download can take 30 minutes or more.

  2. Extract the usm-sensor-vmware.zip package to any folder on the machine where you are using the vSphere client.

    It should extract these four files:

    • deploy_config.iso
    • USM_sensor-node.ovf
    • USM-disk1.vmdk
    • USM.mf
  3. In your ESXi Web Client, click Create/Register VM.

    This opens the New virtual machine wizard.

  4. In the Select creation type page, choose Deploy a virtual machine from an OVF or OVA file and click Next.

  5. Enter a name for the new VM and select the template files.

  6. Browse to the location where you extracted the files from the sensor download package, select the OVF and VMDK files, and click Next.

  7. For each of the wizard pages, set the parameters as needed for your network and click Next:

    • Select storage: Select the datastore you want to use for the VM.
    • Deployment options: Set the networking and deployment for the VM.

      The primary network requires internet connectivity and an IP address that is routed to provide the access to USM Anywhere. The other interfaces passively monitor network traffic in promiscuous mode. See Configure Network Interfaces for On-Premises Sensors for more information about these interfaces.

    • Clear the Power on automatically option. It is important to create the VM without powering it on so that you can configure the ISO file before the initial boot.
  8. On the Ready to complete panel, review the configuration and click Finish.

    An alert appears that says 'A required disk image was missing.' Ignore this message, because you will address the disk image in the next step.

    Import of the OVF and VMDK files and the creation of the virtual image can take some time. You can check the status in the Recent Tasks window.

  9. After the VM is created but not yet powered on, configure the correct ISO file, deploy_config.iso, for the datastore:

    Note: Sometimes a different ISO file is selected by default causing the deployment to fail.

    Warning: You must complete this step to ensure that the ISO is mounted when you first start the sensor VM. If you see REPLACEME as the initial login password in the sensor welcome screen when you connect to the VM, it is most likely that the ISO was not correctly mounted before start. If this happens, you must shut down the VM, complete this step so that the ISO is configured for the datastore, and then complete the subsequent steps in the procedure to deploy and connect to the sensor.

    • Upload the deploy_config.iso file to your datastore. You can use the datastore browser in the web client to select the ISO file and upload it.
    • Select the new sensor VM in the left pane and scroll to the Hardware Configuration section.
    • Locate CD/DVD drive 1 in the hardware list and click Select disc image.

    • Navigate the datastore and select the deploy_config.iso file.

    • Click Select.
  10. In the toolbar, click Power on to start the USM Anywhere Sensor VM.
  11. After the startup is complete the VM status is Running. Wait until the login screen displays, then disconnect the CD/DVD drive in the VM settings:

    • Click Actions and select Edit settings.
    • Scroll through the dialog box to the CD/DVD drive 1, deselect the Connect checkbox, and click Save.

      The web client displays an Answer question dialog box that requires you to choose to override the lock to disconnect the image.

    • Select Yes and click Answer.
  12. In the toolbar, click Restart to reboot the VM.

    After the reboot, the sensor initialization process starts. The sensor VM thumbnail displays a green startup screen during this process, which can take a few minutes to complete.

  13. Connect to the console for the USM Anywhere Sensor using one of the following methods.

    • In the toolbar, click Console.
    • Click the thumbnail for the sensor VM.
