VirtualBox failed to import appliance – Top 4 Causes and Fixes

by Adarsh M | Nov 19, 2019

Failed to import appliance in Virtualbox?

In VirtualBox, virtual machines are referred to as appliances.

Virtualbox supports disk image files such as VDI, VMDK, VHD, and HDD.

At Bobcares, we often get requests from our customers regarding VirtualBox as part of our Server Management Services.

Today, we’ll see how our Support Engineers resolve failed to import appliance in VirtualBox error.

How to import Appliance in VirtualBox

First, let us discuss how our Support Engineers import Appliance in VirtualBox for your customers.

We open the Virtualbox manager.

Click on File and select Import Appliance option. Now a window appears.

Now we browse for the file and select the .OVA file. Then click next.

Within a few seconds, the file will be read and we select the RAM and the CPU required.

Finally, click on import.

Once the process is complete we can use the Virtual Machine.

Common errors and how we fix VirtualBox failed to import appliance

Let us discuss the common reasons for the failure and how our Support Engineers resolve the error for our customers.

1. Image file corrupt

One of the common reasons that fail VM import is file corruption. This is a common error when the file is downloaded from the internet. This happens because of network issues during the download or the file is not downloaded completely.

To resolve the error we re-download the file and try to import the file. Here, we always ensure that there are no download restrictions in the server network.

2. Attach as a virtual hard disk

Recently one of our customers contacted us regarding the error. Let us discuss how our Support Engineers helped the customer resolve it.

In this case, the file downloaded properly. But he was still facing the same error. Here, we helped him create a new VM and attach the file as a virtual disk.

We open Virtualbox Manager and click on New.

Now we enter the Name, Type, and version of the operating system and click next.

Then we select the Allocated memory size and click next.

Select the option Use an existing virtual hard disk file. Now we browse and locate the file. Click on Create.

Thus it creates a new virtual machine with the attached file.

3. Administrative privileges for vboxmanage.exe

Another common reason for import appliance failure in Windows happens when the vboxmanage.exe file does not have the administrative privileges. This occurs when trying to attach the disk from the USB drive. This is because the USB drive requires admin rights. So our Support Engineers run the application as an administrator and import Appliance in VirtualBox.

4. Corrupted VirtualBox installation

The corrupted VirtualBox installation will also fail to import appliance. During corrupted VirtualBox, the only option is to re-install the whole VirtualBox. So our Support Engineers re-install the VirtualBox once again and import the appliance.

In short, we have discussed how our Support Engineers import Appliance in VirtualBox. Also, we have discussed the common causes for the error faced during import and how we resolve it.

If there is an aborted import, it will give fail – delete the complete folder from the Virtualbox_VMs folder. Then the import should then work normally.

Error importing .OVA file

Error importing .OVA file

by olibleu » 20. Jul 2013, 21:47

I have searched for a solution to this problem for a while now, but I didn’t find any.
On an Ubuntu 13.04 host, I exported a few VMs in a OVA file. Now I’m trying to import them on a Windows 8 host, and I get this error:
Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view 0%. 10%.
Progress state: E_FAIL
VBoxManage.exe: error: Appliance import failed
VBoxManage.exe: error: Internal inconsistency looking up disk image ‘vmdisk10’
VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_FAIL (0x80004005), component Appliance, interface IAppliance
VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: «int __cdecl handleImportAppliance(struct HandlerArg *)» at line 781 of file VBoxManageAppliance.cpp

I looked around the web a lot, and there is no solution to this problem apparently. I don’t need to recover all of the VMs, but a few of them are important. Is there a way with VBoxManage to recover a subset of the machines in an OVA package ? VBoxManage official documentation (chapter 8 ) doesn’t say much about this, and it is hard to find information on the structure of OVA files. I don’t mind having to unzip and recover (and eventually, repair) manually vmdk and XML files. As I said, there are 1 or 2 VMs that I really need to recover.
Thanks for your time!

well I wouldn’t use .ova files myself.

edit: It just seems that since VirtualBox allows you to create an .ova file and with more than one VM, it should be able to import them otherwise why have the function at all? and there is a problem just creating new machines and attaching the .vdmk files. when you create the .ova files it renames the .vdis so you have no idea which .vdmk file went with which guest or what the settings were for each.

I don’t have any more to add. If the originals are not available this is the best to try to recover the guest if it is important. Otherwise you need to file a ticket at bugtracker

I have not looked at that part of the code since we were able to move guests around easily since they are all self contained and we can just add the critters.

I ran into this same exact problem today. It would import the first vmdisk then fail on the second no matter what.

You can extract the ova like mentioned above, then make a separate copy of the ovf for each VM.

Find and remove all the disks that do not got with the VM

How to fix VirtualBox error when you try to import an ova file

  • Get link
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • Email
  • Other Apps

If you download an ova file to import it to Virtualbox, maybe you will see the following message:

Failed to import appliance filename.ova.

Seeking within the archive failed (VERR_TAR_UNEXPECTED_EOS).

Result Code: VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80BB0005)
Component: ApplianceWrap
Interface: IAppliance

If you do it the same throught VBoxManage you will get:

# VBoxManage import filename.ova
Progress state: VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR
VBoxManage: error: Appliance import failed
VBoxManage: error: Seeking within the archive failed (VERR_TAR_UNEXPECTED_EOS)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80bb0005), component ApplianceWrap, interface IAppliance
VBoxManage: error: Context: «RTEXITCODE handleImportAppliance(HandlerArg*)» at line 877 of file VBoxManageAppliance.cpp


To fix it, you must extract ova content and compress again as follows:

tar xvf filename.ova
tar cvf newfilename.ova filename.ovf filename.vmdk

Also, you can import the virtual machine with double click on .ovf file
Enjoy it!

Expected behavior

start and provision the virtual machine

Actual behavior

I tried to start the virtual machine by doing vagrant up but there was a problem with my username (it had some accents). I changed the folder name and a registry value for it to work. But after doing that the problem as stated by the output appears. It looks like it’s using the previous username where it should update this value automatically?

  1. Change a windows user folder to another value.
  2. Try to do vagrant up.

This seems to show the underlying issue:

where jimenezjrs.vagrant.d != jimenezjrs\.vagrant.d . You might try either deleting the .vagrant.d directory in your user’s home directory, or moving it if you want to retain the content within it. Then running vagrant up again and see if the incorrect path is still used.

I am going to close this due to lack of response. If this is still occurring, please open a new issue and follow the provided issue template that appears when you click the «New Issue» button. This will help us in getting a reproduction and fix. Thanks!

@raulsimpat @chrisroberts @briancain @vardhireddy I also had this same problem. Deleting the .vagrant.d folder did not work by itself.

I opened the VirtualBox Manager app and saw that I had a huge collection of vagrant-created VMs that were essentially orphaned, probably because I had not been doing a «vagrant destroy» and had simply been deleting the data from my vagrant folder. So I did the following:
