    Oracle VirtualBox Failed to import appliance.

    jim f - oracle
      Oracle VirtualBox installed on an Oracle Linux Box.

      Downloaded the template V33685-01.zip and extracted the file OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova

      From within Oracle VirtualBox, File---->Import Appliance was selected.

      Navigated to the location of the OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova file.

      Upon clikcing the NEXT button, the following error was returned.

      I thought the file may be corrupt and attempted to delete and re-extract but encountered the same error.

      Any idea?

      Here is the error:

      Failed to import appliance /Downloads/VirtualBoxTemplates/OracleLinux6Update1/OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova.

      Error reading "/Downloads/VirtualBoxTemplates/OracleLinux6Update1/OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova": Hard disk item with instance ID 5 specifies invalid parent 0, line 85.
