Can't Import Virtual Applicance
Posted on 2008-11-03
I am having trouble importing a Virtual Machine into VMWare ESXi. The original virtual machine was created and is on VMWare Virtual Server 2.0. I used the ovftool so that I could convert and then use the Import Virtual Appliance tool in the Infrastructure Client. However, when I finally go through the import process I get the error: The hardware family of the OVF package is not supported: vmx-07. I found that this error message had to do with the virtual hardware version. I was able to roll the hardware version back to version 6 by using VMWare converter. Still no luck. I get the same error except with vmx-06. The one virtual machine that I created on ESXi has hardware version 4. Does anyone know a way around the hardware version issue? Thanks for any help in advance.
