    I have downloaded the file multiple times and trying to install, keep getting the error. Is there a MD5 checksum to ensure the download is happening properly?

    Are you downloading the standard OVA, or the one for ESXi 5.5?

    I’ll verify that it’s not corrupt, and post the MD5s shortly.

    I’ve posted the MD5 checksums, as shown on my windows box. You can see them here:
    https://www.ucguru.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=license_frontend_userpage

    This command will give you the checksum to compare
    CertUtil -hashfile C:\Downloads\VoIP_Detective.ova MD5

    If the checksums line up then let me know some more information about the error. Are you just doing a drag and drop into vsphere, where it’s giving you an error? If so, what is the exact error, and what version of vsphere are you running?

    *update:
    I did find issues in the files that were uploaded. Please download the ova again and give it a try.

    Also, curious, can this be tested in lab environment, virtualized on VMware player or VirtualBox?

    I was able to download again and able to match the MD5, able to proceed with the install.

    Thank you Terry

    I’ve only deployed it on ESX 6.5 and 6.7. I had assumed that a 6.5 OVA would work on 6, but I may have been mistaken.
    Would you mind trying the 5.5 OVA and see if that gives the same error?

    csshenoy,
    Give me the weekend, and I’ll build a new OVA. I’ve found a problem with the existing one that I want to resolve. I plan on having a new version ready on Monday.

    I’ve uploaded the new 0.831 OVA files. Give them a try and let me know if you have any problems
