Running Ghiro appliance on ESXi

Posted on June 16, 2014 in Tools • 1 min read

Ghiro is a nice digital image forensics tool (ok it is self promotion..) and it comes as appliance too, this is great when you need a click and run environment to start processing images ASAP.

The appliance is available in OVA format (for VirtualBox, VMware Player and Workstation), unfortunatly the appliance generated with VirtualBox defaults for Ghiro 0.1 can’t run on VMware vSphere Hypervisor (former ESXi), so  starting from today it is available in OVF format for Vmware ESXi.

If you need to run Ghiro on ESXi you can download the Ghiro appliance for ESXi from Ghiro official website, import it with vSphere client and run it! It is tested on ESXi 5.5.x.

Have fun!
