Error "No manifest entry found for: 'File_Name.iso" while uploading ova file to vCD KB#00002


During upload of ova\ovf file to Cloud Director you might get error like "No manifest entry found for: 'File_Name.iso'.


To resolve this, follow below steps one by one:
Step 1: Unzip the OVA file #In case of OVF there is no need to unzip
Step 2: Locate the OVF file and edit it in Notepad++ or any other text editor
Step 3: In OVF file, search for "vmware.cdrom.iso" and replace it with "vmware.cdrom.remotepassthrough" in OVF file only
Step 4: Save the file and exit
# making above modification will bypass checking of CD-ROM hence .iso file
Step 5: Rename or delete the .mf file (Please note that .mf file comes with ovf package so we need to make it unavailable by either deleting or renaming the extension otherwise it will not allow the changes to make effect)
Step 6: Now retry to upload the template through ovftool or any other way you might use.
It will be uploaded now without any issue, in case of no other issue with OVA\OVF
