How to run ovftool from HSNM Appliance

Hello Support,

We have HSNM Appliance Hardware, so we have only access to Web based portal, there is no console. Also, there is no way to download "ovftool " from AWS web site and run that.
Now we would like backup whole HSNM, how we can run ovftool from Web portal of Appliance?

Best Regards,

Hi Azhar,
you cannot. OVF tool is a VMware tool that converts vmx virtual machines into OVA/OVF open format so you can import it into another compatible HyperVisor.
As already answered you by email, it is not possible to convert a Hardware license into a Virtual one.
Please get in touch with our sales department so you can find a solution that fits to you.
Have a nice day.
