Thanks very much for the fast reply. Looking at DSP0243, I'm finding the depth of information that I seek.
I'm trying to introduce stricter value checking in my product's .ovf file for several values, including IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. I would have thought that the standard would include validators for these basic requirements. But I only find this example, which doesn't do any validation:
2425 <Property ovf:key="app_ip" ovf:type="string" ovf:defaultValue="192.168.0.10">
2426 <Description>The IP address of this appliance</Description>
Any thoughts on how best to do validation of IPv4/IPv6 addresses?
@DCasota Rather than suggesting a different area to create a duplicate post, you can choose Report Inappropriate Content from the menu (3 vertical dots) to the right of any comment, asking moderators to move the post to a different location that you suggest.
I have now done that for this post, and reported the duplicate post for deletion since there are other replies already in this post.
Thanks Scott 🙂 After fifteen years, happy to know I could use this functionality! I always thought "inappropriate" has to do with swearing, blaming and other rituals developers typically do before starting fixing an issue 8-)
