VMware Player - OVF deployement error

Hi

I have created OVF file from vSphere Client 4.1 using Export OVF option. I am using the same OVF in VM Player 3.1 but its throwing the following error :

Failed to open virtual machine : Failed to query source for information.

Is OVF not compatable with VM Player?

Please let me know your inputs or suggestions on this issue.

Thanks in advance.

do you still have the original ?

then I would just forget about ovf and instead export the vmdk via vmkfstools

vmkfstools -i esx.vmdk vmplayer.vmdk -d 2gbsparse

then you can copy the vmx and the vmplayer.vmdk and run them in VMplayer

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - call me via skype "sanbarrow"
