SHA1 sum check seems to be failing on import of OVF file

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I created a virtual machine using VMware Workstation 7.1. I exported it to OVF format using VMware's "ovftool", version 2.0.1, giving me the following four files:

-rw-r--r-- 1 znmeb users 2203095552 2011-01-08 23:43 Project_Kipling-disk1.vmdk -rw-r--r-- 1 znmeb users 4346398720 2011-01-08 23:37 Project_Kipling-file1.iso -rw-r--r-- 1 znmeb users 217 2011-01-08 23:43 Project Kipling.mf -rw-r--r-- 1 znmeb users 4873 2011-01-08 23:43 Project Kipling.ovf

The "manifest" (.mf) file has the SHA1 checksums of the other three files:

more Project\ Kipling.mf

SHA1(Project Kipling.ovf)= 7ffc9e47eae73020d6eea9d05f9c9f910cf3a532 SHA1(Project_Kipling-file1.iso)= 2b6212d6df83c29dd1b1801cc25660359a0d917d SHA1(Project_Kipling-disk1.vmdk)= d716e964d85beaa23bdbb4c5072f81539792490d

And the checksums look correct:

sha1sum Project\ Kipling.ovf

7ffc9e47eae73020d6eea9d05f9c9f910cf3a532 Project Kipling.ovf

sha1sum Project_Kipling-file1.iso

2b6212d6df83c29dd1b1801cc25660359a0d917d Project_Kipling-file1.iso

sha1sum Project_Kipling-disk1.vmdk

d716e964d85beaa23bdbb4c5072f81539792490d Project_Kipling-disk1.vmdk

But when I try to import the OVF file into VirtualBox 4.0.0, it spends a few minutes importing the virtual disk. Then it crashes with the attached error message.

Error message after conversion of the disk

The reason for this error seems to be the ISO file you have included into the OVA package. This is not supported by VBox and because there are more entries in the mf file than files expected by VBox, this error occurs. For now I can only suggest not to include ISO files when exporting files into ova from vmware. We will ofc support this case, but I can't say any timeline for now.

Replying to poetzsch:

I didn't notice the ISO file ... let me get rid of it and see what happens.
