    Great article!

    I had troubles with the vmdk file, datastore browser would not list it, the descriptor information in the article is outdated for ce-2017.05.22-stable.img.gz.

    I’ve found the following website that tells you how to create your own from scratch. Maybe the info gets included. Requires you to enable ssh on the ESX host but the rest of the steps are easy.
