    This file will extract the files for CSA 4.3-123 Dev. Once extracted, you will want to import the file into your VMware.

    After installing, please see the LANDESK Cloud Services Appliance Landing Page and view the Quick Guide - Gateway (Cloud Service Appliance) Configuration so that you may update the version of the CSA and get it configured.



    To deploy this appliance in a VMWare vSphere 5 environment:

    1. Download the .exe and double-click it to extract it a folder ("LDcsa43") on your workstation.
    2. Upload the folder of VM files to a datastore in your vCenter environment, then browse to that folder on the datastore.
    3. Right-click the ".vmx" file and select "Add to inventory".
    4. Follow through the "New machine" wizard.


    If you own VMware products, it is simple to convert the downloaded & extracted vCSA to OVA/OVF.  OVFTool.exe is built into VMware Workstation and also comes with ESX.

    1. Open the extracted vmx file in VMware workstation
    2. Remove the virtual CD-ROM device, and then add a new one. There is a reference to an unavailable ISO image that must be forgotten, or Step 4 will fail.
    3. Save the changes, and exit VMware (or close the VM)
    4. Save the line below as a batch file alongside the extracted virtual machine files (.vmdk, .vmx, etc):
      • "%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\VMware\VMware Workstation\OVFTool\ovftool.exe" --machineOutput --diskMode=thin --compress=9 "%~dp0LDCSA43.vmdk" "%~dp0LDCSA43.ova"
    5. Run the .bat, wait 10-30 minutes, and you'll have a nice OVA or OVF (depending on the file extension specified at the end of the line above) that is about 437 megabytes.
