OVF Tool Error

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

what are youtrying to do with the OVF Tool?

Why not use the File, Export, OVF Template from the vSphere Client for Export?

I did this the graphical way as well, and I receive the same error message.

So Export from vSphere Client does not function?

what are you wanting to do with the OVF?
I started with Experts Exchange in 2004 and it's been a mainstay of my professional computing life since. It helped me launch a career as a programmer / Oracle data analyst
