I use VMWare VSphere 4. I downloaded the MediaWiki appliance, and went to install it (Deploy OVF Template > Choose MediaWiki OVF file > .. ) and I got an error message that won't let me continue:
The OVF package is invalid and cannot be deployed.
Line 9: Unsupported value 'http://www.vmware.com/interfaces/specification/vmdk.html#sparse' for attribute 'format' on element 'Disk'
I haven't ever done anything with appliances, and am unsure what this actually is saying. I would guess that it means it is trying to get the vmdk files from the vmware website. am I close?
Is there another way I should be installing the appliance, rather than deploying the OVF file?
