Virtual Appliance Service Provider Edition (SPE) Rapid Deployment
The SA Series SSL VPN Virtual Appliances, Service Provider Edition (VA-SPE), previously offered configuration scripts to aid in initial provisioning actions required to activate each system on VMware ESX through the VMware Console feature. With the newer ESXi hypervisor, however, the VMware Console feature is no longer available. The rapid provisioning feature of the SA Series Virtual Appliances Service Provider Edition has now been adapted to work with the OVFtool application. The entire configuration of the SA Series SPE Virtual Appliance can be scripted, with better performance achieved through the VMXNET2 driver. Rapid deployment functionality is no longer dependent on the VMware Service Console nor the Juniper Serial Console.
