Opening OVF source: appliance.ovf Warning: No manifest file Please enter login information for target vi://VSERVER/ Username: DOMAIN USER Password: ********* Opening VI target: vi://DOMAIN USER@VSERVER/DATACENTER/vm/FOLDER/vAPP Error: - A specified parameter was not correct. folder
Using the same command as above, when the vApp does not already exist, produces a "does not refer to an object" error.
Error: Locator does not refer to an object: vi://DOMAIN USER@VSERVER/DATACENTER/vm/FOLDER/vAPP
However, if I change the command to deploy to a target "folder", an error message appears, indicating a "wrong kind of object" error:
<snip> Error: Found wrong kind of object (Folder)
Assuming my first syntax is the correct one, the " - A specified parameter was not correct. (/p) folder" message throws me. It seems inappropriate to the command.
I've tried several variations but no luck so far. I'm not seeing anything specific in the documentation as far as special handling in the cases of deployment of multiple-VM OVFs or deployment to clusters. I tried looking at the commands with the debug parameters "--X:logToConsole --X:logLevel=trivial" , but saw nothing immediately helpful (to me anyway :P).
What should my expected target be for this... vApp or folder? Should the vApp exist, or not? Am I missing something else entirely?
