VirtualBox does not import nuxeo 5.9.2

Hi,

Followed instructions on README.txt, i.e. from VirtualBox (v4.3.6 on OS X 10.9.2): In the interface, go to File -> Import Appliance and select nuxeovm.ovf.

However, I get the following error message:


Failed to import appliance /MYPATH/nuxeo-5.9.2-vm/nuxeovm.ovf. Could not find a valid medium format for the source disk 'nuxeovm.vmdk' Check correctness of the image format URL in the OVF description file..

Result Code: VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED (0x80BB0009) Component: Appliance

Interface: IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}

Any suggestions will be welcome

We have seen this on the 5.8 image as well.

The import was broken by some VirtualBox changes.
Going through their changelog, the likely culprit is “OVF: improved logic for finding an appropriate image format during OVF import” (VBox 4.3.4)

We hope to find a fix for it, but in the meantime the workaround is to use an older version.
I haven't tested 4.3.2, but it works on 4.2.10.

Hi

My configuration : VirtualBox 4.3.6 with Debian 7.4

I just found how to do. You have to modified the ovf file because the vmware url is not yet valid:

previous (line 17 in your ovf file)

<Disk ovf:diskId="nuxeovm" ovf:capacity="10240" ovf:capacityAllocationUnits="byte * 2^20" ovf:format="http://www.vmware.com/interfaces/specifications/vmdk.html#monolithicFlat" ovf:fileRef="nuxeovm.vmdk_id" ovf:populatedSize="10240"/>

now in my configuration

<Disk ovf:diskId="nuxeovm" ovf:capacity="10240" ovf:capacityAllocationUnits="byte * 2^20" ovf:format="http://www.vmware.com/interfaces/specifications/vmdk.html#streamOptimized" ovf:fileRef="nuxeovm.vmdk_id" ovf:populatedSize="10240"/>

I hope it will help

Regards

I've applied this update for the VM for Nuxeo 5.9.5, seems to work fine on the latest VirtualBox version.
