Looking for some help with ESXI. I'm trying to use the OVFtool with ESXI 4.1 I've downloaded the tool and installed it on windows xp pro computer. when I try to use it to convert a vmdk file to an ovf. I get the error: failed to open OVF descriptor.
This is the txt I enter to convert ovftool drive:\filename.vmdk drive:\filename.ovf this is what I receive
Opening OVF source: drive:\filename.vmdk
Error: Failed to open OVF descriptor
I know I can use the VMware Converter to do this and it works fine but I use Acronis B&R 10 and it creates a vmdk file for backups if I need it, so I would like to be able to use it.
