Automated template creation using Hashicorp Packer

News

I updated recently my template to leverage the vsphere-iso builder (instead of vmware-iso); The vsphere-iso builder, previously maintained by JetBrains, has been merged with the Packer core in Packer 1.5.2. It will be officially supported by the Packer team at HashiCorp moving forward.

I moved to the vsphere-iso builder for 2 main reasons:

  • This builder uses the vSphere API and does neither require the SSH service running on the ESXi host nor ESXi host modification (GuestIPHack enabled).
  • I can use a distributed port group to connect my template during the creation.

Overview

Note: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is the only template provided in this repository.

Usage

Step 1 - Clone the git repository

Step 2 - Edit the var-ubuntu-18.04.json

Step 3 - Build the template

./build-ubuntu-18.04.sh

You can’t perform that action at this time.
