OVF produced by virtualbox 3.2beta1 has some issues

We have tried out the beta1 of Virtualbox 3.2 and we have some issues with the OVF that it produces.

. Order of RASDs

  • The OVF spec says that the RASD must be sorted by letter. This is different from the OVF 0.9 format.

. Use the right URL for disk formats

  • The VMware diskformat url are wrong. Virtualbox should be using: ovf:format=""

. Make vbox:Machine a real OVF section

  • The new vbox:Machine should be made into a real OVF section. You will need to set the attribute ovf:requried=false. Please see the spec for this.
  • All OVF sections must have a <Info> element as written in the spec.

Feel free to contact me for more info Eske Christiansen VMware
