BTW, I'm running the following version:
C:\tmpflux\Symantec_Brightmail_Gateway_8.0>"C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware OVF Tool\ovftool.exe" --version VMware ovftool 2.0.1 (build-260188)

Have you tried running the appliance. I would try downloading another small appliance and run the tool. http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/628223 is very small 6MB
If you still have trouble I would try installing on another computer.
Yes, I imported the appliance into an ESXi 3.5 host and it runs just fine. I'll try downloading a small appliance and see if I receive similar results.
Thanks for the reply
Thanks for the pointer. I downloaded the Monowall appliance and it converted fine.
I opened the VMX file for the Symantec appliance in Notepad and it was formatted with UNIX style CRLF as was the .VMDK description file. I copied the contents of those files to new files in Notepad and renamed all files in the VM folder with shorter names and now the ovftool is converting the VM.
Thanks again for the help.
As a recommendation for enhancement to VMware, maybe the Windows version of the ovftool could check for proper CRLF in the VMX and VMDK description files and convert them to the proper Windows format before attempting a conversion. Thanks for VMware for the tool.
Glad to know you are up and working.
