Import Of an Assembly Containing More Than Four Virtual Disks Fails with OVMRU_005038E (Doc ID 2690249.1)

Last updated on MAY 26, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Private Cloud at Customer - Version N/A and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
Linux x86-64


Import of an OVA terminated with OVMRU_005038E when it attempted to create a fifth vdisk
- as the vm domain type was HVM this is expected.
The attempt to make it HVMPV by editing the ovf component did not resolve the issue.


  • rename the original .ova file <exported_vm>.orig
  • re-package the ova:
    • tar -cvf <exported_vm>.ova <exported_vm>.ovf *.vmdk
