OVFTOOL Locator does not refer to an objecr

Hey Community,

i´try to use ovftool to deploy an OVA appliance inside the vcenter. I get an error:

Error: Locator does not refer to an object: vi://administrator%40vsphere.local@myvcenter.domain.com:443/test/vm/template/vmware/

Here is my command:

ovftool --acceptAllEulas -ds=DATASTORE_A_001 --net:"vxw-dvs-111-virtualwire-10-sid-100067-LS-A0-1-VMware" --deploymentOption=tiny --diskMode=thin "C:\tmp\test_OVA.ova" vi://myvcenter.domain.com/test/vm/template/vmware

I have also tried to post the vi://.... in " " but that also don´t work. Also tried to use an admin user without @. No success. Even if i try to connect over the ovftool to the vcenter i get the above named error. Command: ovftool vi://administrator%40vsphere.local@myvcenter.domain.com/test/vm/template/vmware

Any idea whats the problem????

Also if i want to post in the command, DNS, Gateway, IP i do not have all informations. The "ClassID" and the "InstanceID" are missing when i execute:

ovftool "C:\tmp\test_OVA.ova"

The command should be like this i need

ovftool.exe --acceptAllEulas -ds="datastore1" \

--net:"Isolated Network"="DMZ" \

--prop:"vami.gateway.vSphere_Data_Protection_5.8"="10.0.2.1" \

--prop:"vami.DNS.vSphere_Data_Protection_5.8"="10.0.1.254" \

--prop:"vami.ip0.vSphere_Data_Protection_5.8"="10.0.2.150" \

--prop:"vami.netmask0.vSphere_Data_Protection_5.8"="255.255.255.0" \

\\nas\data\nfs\VMWare\vSphereDataProtection-5.8.ova \

vi://vcsa.domain.com/datacentername/host/clustername

I only get this informations when executing: ovftool "C:\tmp\test_OVA.ova"
