Deploying an OVA to a VMware vSphere infrastructure can fail with the following error:
Failed to deploy OVF package: The request was aborted: The request was cancelled.
The OVA file can be damaged. Because an OVA file is a TAR, the archive can be tested using 7-Zip. Open the archive, use the verify function and see the result:
The archive is corrupted, and the VMDK file cannot be extracted.
