when trying to deploy a OVA template I made to migrate some server. I got this weird error.
Deploy OVF template
192.168.1.250
The task 
was 
canceled by 
a user.
Really, I didn't do anything.

How to Fix
with 7zip, unzip your OVA template
delete the file .mf file
edit the .ofv file and change
vmware.cdrom.iso
Changing the above line, to read…
vmware.cdrom.atapi
then save.
To deploy;
Deploy OVA file from File menu.
Select the folder you unzipped
Select the ovf file.
worked for me.
This was on ESXi, 5.1.0

Another useful tool

This will read a directory and sub directories (if you choose to) and copy the files to another folder and each file will be bz2 compressed.
This is useful for game servers where you have a fast download server.
