When I try to import an OVA using the
vSphere client (File -> Deploy OVF Template), I get an error. The error says:
The following manifest file entry (line 3) is invalid. <non ASCII characters> 2.BJ
My manifest file (.mf) is only 2 lines long. Also, if I unpack
the OVA using a tool like winrar and then try to import OVF, everything
Also, the import of the OVA works fine under ovftool as well.
That leads me to believe that there isn't anything actually wrong with
the manifest file.
Any ideas or thoughts? Thanks.
Yes, that did work. And, when I compared the difference in the manifest files, I saw what my problem was. I'm missing a newline character after the second line. The import of an OVA works now. Strange though that this error is not hit when you untar the OVA first.
Thanks for helping me find the solution!
