How to fix OVF Deployment Failed deviceImage-0.iso was not found error vmware

The error  had  me  troubleshooting for a  couple  hours . Every solution which  I tried  finished  with same error  which couldn’t find  ISO file  named  deviceImage. Then  I extract OVA file  with  “7zip” on windows .

If  you check  your  ovf  file, you ‘ll  observ  these  lines;

<Item ovf:required=”false”>
<rasd:ElementName>CD/DVD drive 1</rasd:ElementName>

The  problem  when you  import OVF file, It’ll check  vmware.cdrom.iso  and  it fails  couldn’t  find  ISO .

I’ll describe  how to fix  this  problem  step by step;

Step 1:Uncompress OVA file using  TAR or  7zip  in windows

Step 2:Locate  your OVF file dicrectory which  contains  the configuration of the  VM to deploy.

Step 3:Open <your_ovf_name>.ovf  file  and  replace  this line.



Replace  “vmware.cdrom.iso” to  “vmware.cdrom.remotepassthrough”

last state:


Step 4:Save the  ovf  file and  copy  it  under  a linux server. 

I used  linux  server  to create  a  manifest  file  but  you can  use  online site  to  create  SHA1 .

for linux   ;

Copy  “da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709”  and edit  MF  file  which  located  under your  OVF configuration folder.

Step 4: Open  <your_ovf_name>.mf  and edit  first  SHA1  lines  which  belongs  to  OVF configuration file. 

SHA1(PCI-DSS-RedHat-Server_Template_Last.ovf)= da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709
SHA1(PCI-DSS-RedHat-Server_Template_Last-disk1.vmdk)= 264b91281b3adf4a6d6c584ed028d740facabc70
SHA1(PCI-DSS-RedHat-Server_Template_Last-disk2.vmdk)= 30040949162b4c9f3e9bc0352adfff578963184b
