This tutorial will show you how to export a VM as an OVF file so that you can import it into another ESXi host or system.
Login to the ESXi Host
First of all, login to the web management interface of the ESXi 6.7 host by typing the IP address into a web browser.
Export the VM as an OVF
Click on Virtual Machines, right click on the name of the virtual machine you want to export, then click Export.
Choose a location to save the OVF file to.
Save the VMDK files to the same location.
Wait for the export to complete and then check the location on your local machine for the exported files.
Your VM should now be exported to your local machine and can be imported on a different ESXi host.
