Deploying the OVA
Point your browser to your vSphere Web Client, and use the Deploy OVF Template feature.
You can deploy use the "Local File" option, or use a URL if you have NAbox available in a central repository.
You cannot use NAbox download link to install directly from the web site.
Choose a name and a folder where you want to deploy NAbox
Choose the compute resource in which you want to deploy NAbox
Review OVA details
Choose a datastore to deploy NAbox. You can deploy NAbox on NFS or VMFS datastores.
Choose the network on which NAbox should be connected. On first boot, NAbox will get its IP address automatically from the network unless specified otherwise on the next screen.
You can deploy NAbox with a static IP address by filling out the network settings.
If you leave everything by default (blank) then DHCP will be used.
Check parameters and accept the deployment settings
Wait for the deployment to finish and boot the appliance.
Once booted, you can find out the IP address of NAbox from the Virtual Machine Summary page.
