VMWare OVFTool Domain User Note
So I am in the process of migrating my TFS boxes from their consumer grade hardware to an actual datacenter. The datacenter is setup for Active Directory on our corporate domain. I didn’t want to have a server administrator account created just for these moves and I knew our team wasn’t going to let me have that amount of access. I wanted to use the technique I described here. Anyhow, I found this today. Basically you need to URL encode anything in the “vi” URI. vi://WINDOMAIN%5cAdministrator:password@host/ The bolded part would be the “\” in your domain. I hope this helps someone!
