“The OVF package is invalid and cannot be deployed” error when deploying DDM VMware appliance

Deploying the DDM VMware appliance via the vSphere Client fails and you see this error:

The OVF package is invalid and cannot be deployed.
The following manifest file entry (line 1) is invalid: SHA256 (xxxxxxx.ova).

Below is the link to the KB article for converting and extracting OVA files to work on older Vmware versions:


vSphere Client does not support the SHA256 hashing algorithm, which is implemented in the latest DDM build.
