Error while importing EBS 12.2.4 VM Template / Virtual Appliance

While working on EBS12.2.4 installation on Virtual Box using Oracle Virtual Appliance (.OVA) file, I received an error when I tried to import the Virtual Appliance file. The error was very generic and given me a tuff time to figure out what was the actual cause.
Failed to import appliance D:\EBSTemplates\12.2.4\Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.4_VISION_INSTALL.ova.
Seeking within the archive failed (VERR_TAR_CHKSUM_MISMATCH).
Result Code: VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80BB0005)
Component: Appliance
Interface: IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}

There are many things that can cause this error :-
  • The most appropriate is that the downloaded files are damaged. Verify the integrity of the downloaded files. Please do a md5sum on the loaded files and compare with what is the md5sum value when it was shipped.

  • Validate the files are merged properly and validate md5sum of merged file as well. To validate file integrity run the md5sum command as “md5sum”.

  • Check the drive where .ova file will be imported i.e the virtual machine folder where it create virtual machine config and drive files. The system should have enough space and current user should have right permission.

  • Make sure you are no the latest version of Virtual Box. In this instance I had the error because I was on lower version of Virtual Box (4.2.X), after I moved to latest version as of today i.e 4.3.x, I was able to import virtual machine.
