VMware : Importing an OVA file with several disks fails with the error: Unable to access file: x:\vdisk.vmdk. End of OVA file reached while looking for: vdisk.vmdk

Experiencing the following error while importing Guest VM template from single OVA file?

Importing an OVA file with several disks fails with the error: Unable to access file: x:\vdisk.vmdk. End of OVA file reached while looking for: vdisk.vmdk

I have encountered the following error trying to export a template I made, selecting a single OVA file option when exporting the template. To work around this issue, I did the same export but selecting the “OVF / Folder of Files” option, which create multiple file in a folder, which create a OVF, MF and VMDK file(s).

Re-exporting the template with “OVF / Folder of Files” option solved that issue.
