A catalog is a container that holds templates and media  files (such as an ISO) for an organization.  Organization admins can create catalogs and upload templates and media used to build new virtual machines.

If needed, contact support at for assistance if uploading custom templates or media fails. We will need a copy of the file(s) as well as any configuration settings that we might get prompted for when uploading, such as IP addresses and system names.

the operating system, VMware Tools, and virtual machine hardware versions up to date.
