ovftool failing? blame vmware


convert ova to vmx

ovftool foo.ova foo.vmx

Will probably throw something like " - Line 25: Unsupported hardware family 'virtualbox-2.2'. Warning:

- Wrong file size specified in OVF descriptor for 'foo-disk001.vmdk' (specified: -1, actual 24349902848).

" In that case try

ovtool --lax foo.ova foo.vmx
