hi,
i installed xenserver 5.6 and tried now to import the Synchronizer_v1_0_RC.xva (downloaded from citrix.com)

the problem the import starts but after about 40! minutes i always get:
The VM could not be imported; the end of the file was reached prematurely.
Check your settings and try again.

any idea? i have already re-downloaded the file from citrix.com (so the file is not corrupt; except
the file on the citrix page itself is "corrupt" what i can't believe...

thx.

the import via CLI direkt on the xenserver-host works fine... so ???

xe vm-import -h <hostname> -u <root> -pw <password> \filename=<pathname_of_export_file>

Are you using the right version of XenCenter?

Assuming you used the command line from the same PC, the only other thing I can think is that maybe your antivirus is interfering with XenCenter somehow.

i have reinstalled xenserver 5.6 now without multipathing;
and now i can import .xva files fast and without any troubles...
I tried with other xencenter, its worked for me
