Invalid file format(10)[0] for vmdk

Postby badbob001 » Wed Nov 28, 2012 7:19 pm

From a VMware ESX Server 3i, I did a Virtaul Appliance Export of a VM, which resulted in two files: a small .OVF file and a large .VMDK file. When I have Converter open the .vmdk file, it gives the following error:

Invalid file format (10)[0]
Not all descriptor fields are present


Is that any way I can get around this issue? Alternative converters? The vmware software is from 2009 so it seems strange that it would have a vmdk format that is not yet supported.

Thanks,
Robert

I must say that unfortunately we do not work with that file format. Probably we will in the future but I cannot say exact dates.

Thank you

I need to convert the snapshot image (including the consolidation of the base HD image) to a VMDK file. The converter interface does not allow me to pick the .AVHD file which is my snapshot.

I think it might gladly work in Linux. You might want to use a virtual machine if you wish or just change the OS. But I would prefer using a virtual machine to run Linux. I do not think there will be any issues in Linux. I hope this helps.

We'll be updating the Converter in a couple of weeks closer to V8 of StarWind released. This issue is expected to be on the fix list. FYI.

Any updates on this?

I just tried to convert a .vmdk extracted from a .ova and go the "Not all descriptor fields are present" error.

If there is a new version (or beta version) that solves this issue, please let me know.

Thanks.
