Using VirtualBox on a Mac Server.

Import throws an error...  Seems like the file is not completely configured?

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?




Failed to import appliance /Users/admin/Downloads/K2000_REMOTE_3.5.75627/K2000_REMOTE_3.5.75627.ovf.

Error reading "/Users/admin/Downloads/K2000_REMOTE_3.5.75627/K2000_REMOTE_3.5.75627.ovf": element "Section" has no "type" attribute, line 18.

Result Code: VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)
Component: Appliance
Interface: IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}

  • I've been able to set up over 20 RSA's, but am having this same error throw up one one specific machine. There are no real differences with this machine from the rest of them, but it will not seem to import no matter what I do.

    I have re-copied the ovf, and re-installed VirtualBox. I can't think of anything else to do with this.

This appears to be a problem with the 4.3 build of VirtualBox. I just tried to do the same thing and also encountered this problem. VirtualBox's website says the problem will be fixed in the next release, for now I installed an older version and it worked.
