Bitnami to VMware vSphere Client

import a Bitnami Virtual Machine (Operating System & Software stack) into ESXi using vSphere Client (VMware's virtualization software)


1.  Download a Bitnami Virtual Machine

These ERRORS in vSphere Client caused this post:
    • New > Virtual Machine > No way to choose Bitnami... Operating System choices are limited to VMware dropdown list
    • Deploy OVF Template... > Choose Bitnami OVF > Error
    • Host > Summary Tab > Right Click on Datastore, Uploading > Error when powering on
2.  Download & Install VMware vCenter Converter Standalone

3.  Convert Machine (in VMware vCenter Converter Standalone)

4.  Source = "Backup image or third party virtual machine"

5.  Browse to Bitnami's .VMX

6.  Next

7.  Type:  VMware Infrastructure virtual machine
     Server:  IP of ESXi server hardware/host
     Username:  root
     Password:  (your set password)

8.  Next > Follow defaults until finished

9.  Update Memory & Hard Drive to desired size

10.  Power On VM from vSphere Client


I hope VMware produces a better product than this very soon.  vSphere feels and works like 1990s software.  

P.S.
