I'm getting a java heap error when running the "OVF Import to VMware Cloud" task, even after increasing the max heap size. Might you be able to share the underlying code?
The import is a built in task. The code is not 100% visible. A wrapper version is visible when you clone the task. I would suggest opening a TAC case for the built in task issue.
Okay, thanks fro the reply, the built in task doesn't completely fit my needs anyhow. Might you know if it is just a wrapper for OVFTool, or if it leverages the OVFManagerImportVApp classes in the VMWare Java SDK?
Sorry - no I don not know. I would suspect the VMware API gets called for the vCenter since all communication happens via that vCenter connection. You could turn debug on (Administration-> Support Information) and then tail -f the log (/opt/infra/inframgr/logfile.txt) and maybe get further insight why it is creating a problem on your system.
I will try that. Thanks again!
Is this on UCSd 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124. ?
No, it's on 126.96.36.199.
That explains it. That is for Java 1.6. and you are on java 1.8.
What should be the entry given to "OVF URL" field?
Picture 1 and two have the info…. /opt/infra/….
