This error occurs when an OVF

This error occurs when an OVF image of a Virtual Appliance file is modified upon extraction.  This usually occurs when a virtual image is being extracted using WinZip.

Steps to deploy an OVF image properly:

  1. Verify that you are using the supported platform.
  2. Verify that the md5sum of the OVF image matches with the md5sum which is provided on the support site for that particular Virtual Appliance.
  3. Create a folder on your local host.
  4. Extract the virtual appliance on the created folder.
  5. Remove the .mf file from the directory.
  6. Import the OVF image now, and deploy it.
