Extra IDE Controller included in OVF export

Reported by: malan Owned by:
Component: OVF Version: VirtualBox 3.2.6

Guest type: other Host type: Mac OS X


When exporting an appliance on VirtualBox 3.2.6 (and perhaps 3.2.x more generally) that has only 1 IDE controller defined (with only virtual disk attached), per the attached screenshot, the resulting OVF file nonetheless has two IDE controllers defined:

  <rasd:Description>IDE Controller</rasd:Description>
  <rasd:Description>IDE Controller</rasd:Description>

When this appliance is imported on VirtualBox 3.1.x (i.e., older versions), the import fails because 3.1.x appears not to support imports of appliances with multiple IDE controllers. A workaround is to delete the second Item element above from the OVF file prior to import.

Older versions of VirtualBox (3.1.x I *think*) did not include this additional IDE controller when exporting appliances.

Happy to provide additional details as needed.
