when I run the OVFTool within 1 datacenter called Test & Integ, I am able to complete an ovf export, however when I run the tool against another datacenter called Live, I get an error of:

Error: Curl error: Couldn't connect to server

the credentials are the same throughout Vcenter this is what I run in command line:

ovftool "vi://172.31.1.110/Live/vm/Win2008r2" c:temp
