i received an ovf that was exported from a vShpere 5.0 host and attempting to import into our vCloud 1.01 enviornment recevied the following error "unsupported hardware family vmx-08" there was an option durng the export to select version vmx-06 which i am in the proccess of trying but is this something that is just not compatabile with vCloud 1.01? any ideas on a possible work around to get this VM imported?
I don't have a vCD 1.0.1 around so I cannot validate it,
1) You could import the .ovf in version 8 onto your resource cluster, then import it from the vSphere into the vCD 1.0.1 as a vApp ?
2) Import the Version 8 into VMware Workstation, downgrade the hardware, and then use ovftool to create a new .ovf for that VM.
Given that hardware version 8 was introduced almost a year after vCD 1.0.x shipped it's likely not supported by the product. vCD 1.5 has support for v8.
