    Default zca-8 Virtual Appliance: ovfenv returns: Unable to find the ovf environment.

    I've installed fresh zca-8 Virtual Appliance on ESXi 5.0.
    Everything runs fine but we have trouble with the OVM environment and we get erorros on boot and ssh login also throws errors or takes very long time. OVM is new stuff for us, but what I found out:

    Login executes /opt/vmware/bin/ovfenv which returns: Unable to find the ovf environment.

    On boot /etc/init.d/vaos returns: Waiting for network to come up (attempt 1 of 10)...
    No value found
    No value found

    Network config ist setup correctly:

    bash-4.1# vami_get_network
    interface: eth0
    config_present: true
    config_flags: STATICV4
    config_ipv4addr: 192.168.110.14
    config_netmask: 255.255.255.0
    config_broadcast: 192.168.110.255
    config_gatewayv4: 192.168.110.1
    config_ipv6addr:
    config_prefix:
    config_gatewayv6:
    autoipv6:
    active_ipv4addr: 192.168.110.14
    active_netmask: 255.255.255.0
    active_broadcast: 192.168.110.255
    active_ipv6addr:
    active_prefix:
    active_gatewayv4: 192.168.110.1
    active_gatewayv6:
    hasdhcpv6: 0
    managed: Managed Internally

    /opt/vmware/etc/vami/ovfEnv.xml is an empty file

    using vSphere Client 5.0 I can't find a vApp section in the VM-Properties/Options Tab which is mentioned in some posts

    Any hints?

    Thanks

    Default

    Fixed.
    The OVA-Template contains a CD-ROM. I found error messages like 'no device found (dev/sr0). After removing the CD-ROM in the VM startup works fine...
