TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

NEWBIE: Drupal & VSphere 4.0? Can't seem to get it to work...

Hello everyone. I'm new to TurnKey. I recently downloaded the Drupal package and tried to deploy to our VSphere 4.0 Update 1 farm however it said the OVF file was invalid. I did a bit of troubleshooting and experimenting but nothing seems to work. I tried copying just the VMDK file and starting up via a new VM but it won't start up. There are errors but i'm not sure its supposed to be this complicated. Is there something I'm missing?

 

Thanks in advance for all your input.

This is a known issue

To quote Liraz from another topic:

"This is a known issue. See also this thread. ESX 3.5 and vSphere (ESX 4.0) seem to use slightly different OVF formats. Users users have reported success using ovftool to convert the provided OVF into a format supported by vSphere."

Also FYI the bug repoort can be found here.

Hope that sorts you out.

Cheers Jed.

Will give the OVF Tool a shot.
