Past few days ago, I had trouble when trying to deploy OVA into vSphere ESXI platform. The error message shown as subject, “Failed to Deploy OVF Package. The task was canceled by a user”. Tried many times follow couple article even KB from VMware didn’t work at all. Had check from the hostd.log unfortunately it show nothing. But, finally i got insight from here, someone said that we may need to remove certain files and do modification from OVF file.
Here is the simple ways to fix it;
- Extract your OVA file, you may use WinRAR, therefore consist 3 files; OVF, MF & VMDK
- Discard MF file
- Rectify following command from OVF
- <rasd:ResourceSubType>vmware.cdrom.iso</rasd:ResourceSubType> to
- Deploy OVF one at the end (Not OVA anymore)
Eventually you succeeded to provision new virtual machine.
Hope this helps.
