some more information:
I used a third server to install citrix xenserver 6.1 and the import of the ovf-files (skipped by xcp) worked fine.

But I haven't got the time to do multi-import-export like the tested
VMWARE -> OVF -> xenserver 6.1
xenserver 6.1 -> XVA -> XCP

I already imported some .xva-files without any problems.

I now wanted to start migrating our ESXi-farm ...

First of all, I installed the XENSERVER Transfer VMs on both servers (following http://blogs.citrix.com/2010/12/09/diagnosing-xenserver-appliance-wizard-failures/) and I also imported the Citrix XCM Virtual Appliance.

Both from XenServer 6.1

I followed http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX133505 and exported an ovf to the local harddrive.

Starting the import via XenCenter 6.1 the required vm-drive is created, but than the import fails ...

Having a closer look to the vmdk:

root@linux-workstation:/mnt/ad02-temp/unterricht# qemu-img info Unterricht_neu-disk1.vmdk
image: Unterricht_neu-disk1.vmdk
file format: vmdk
virtual size: 16G (17179869184 bytes)
disk size: 1.0G

So the vmdk seems to be okay ...

I copied the log to http://wvbg.bndlg.de/~max/xen/xencenter.log

Any hints?

Thank you very much.
