  • 1.  Uncaught typeerror while creating new VM with ovf and vmdk

    Posted Feb 28, 2020 09:22 AM

    Hello!

    I'm trying to create new virtual machine from an OVF and VMDK files. But after pressing "Next" in "Select storage" section it's doing nothing.

    I opened console and saw that there was this error:

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'virtualhardwaresection' of undefined

        at Object.getOVFTransport (main.js:385)

        at FileReader.$scope.wizardOptions.data.ovfFiles.ovfFile.name.toLowerCase.indexOf.ovfFile.name.length.ovfFile.name.toLowerCase.indexOf.ovfFile.name.length.r.onload (main.js:373)

    Is it possible to bypass it somehow?

    I'm using vmware 6.7.0

    Hi

    I didn't get the error, sorry!, but I want to share my experiences. maybe it could be helpful.

    I always check if my OVF file is compatible with my environment, then if there is an error when I am trying to deploy it, I try to remove or change the related error tags from the OVF file. for your scenario, I recommend you check the storage section of your OVF file (XML tags in your OVF file).

    Just keep it in mind that after saving your changes to the OVF file, you can not use the "MF" file while you are deploying the OVF if there is any.
