And when I create ovf using vmware it creates two files .ovf and .vmdk , whether I have to upload both the files or only .vmdk file

Use container_format=ovf, not container_format=ova :)

Thanks jay

yes I used ovf and it was successful. But I have another problem now. I converted vmdk file into ova by using vmware workstation (the vmdk is a windows server machine ) and I launched it, everything went good but when I opened the vnc console it shows me "Boot failed : not a bootable disk"

Hi jay

I believe the problem is with the image , I tried by adding one more vmdk file of windows but its vm keeps on rebooting after reaching "Window Error Recovery ". but when I open the same file in vmware it's running fine . I tried using vdi of windows but it gives same result.

thanks again.
