EBS 12.1.3 VM Template import error

user11982744 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
This error is reproduced on an Oracle VM 3.1.1 platform (VM Manager plus one VM Server). Not patched.

Downloaded Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Vision Demo Database Tier Install X86 (64 bit) (part 1 of 8) till (part 8 of 8) from eDelivery web site
Extracted and concatenated all tgz files to OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz
Moved the tgz file to /var/www/html so it becomes available through Apache HTTP.
See the steps below

unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
unzip /tmp/
cat OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.0 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.1 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.2 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.3 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.4 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.5 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.6 OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz.7 > OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz
mv OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz /var/www/html

Open VM Manager 3.1.1
Select the Storage Repository of some 450 GB size
Select VM Template
Click on the Import icon
VM Template: http://VM_Manager_IPaddress/OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_DB_VIS_PVM.tgz

The import process kicks off fine and starts downloading. Goes on for about 10 minutes and suddlenly stops with the following error message:

curl#18 - "transfer closed with 9775718875 bytes remaining to read"
" on server "44:45:4c:4c:5a:00:10:37:80:33:b6:c0:4f:38:33:4a" associated with object "cfgFile_0004fb0000140000f11a6a059c7c9768"

I tried few times and I consistently got the exact same error message.

Worth mentioned that I did manage to import the EBS Apps VM Template OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_EBIZ12.1.3_APPS_VIS_PVM.tgz without any issues. might be because it was smaller size tgz file (8.9GB instead of 30.4 GB)

It looks as though there is a import size limit thereshold or something or maybe the file is corrupted. Don't know

Any help would be much appreciated.
