Deploy OVA to ESXi 5 host directly

Hello all,

I have a linux VM on a remote ESXi 5 host that I have installed OVFtool.  That same linux vm has a local "win2k8.ova" ova file.  Here is the command i'm trying to use:

ovftool -ds=DS1 -n=MSRVR01 win2k8.ova vi://root:password@172.16.100.20

and get the following message:

Error: Found wrong kind of object (ResourcePool). Possible completions are:

But this is a single ESXi host without any ResourcePools.  How do i get around this?

Thanks,

Nick
