I'm using 'virt-v2v -v -i ova wvm2.ovf -o rhev -os
ovirt-engine:/mnt/export-vm' (my export domain), though unfortunately it

Error is:

[root@kvm-ldn-01 tmp]# virt-v2v -v -x -i ova wvm2.ovf -o rhev -os
virt-v2v: libguestfs 1.28.1 (x86_64)
[   0.0] Opening the source -i ova wvm2.ovf
tar -xzf 'wvm2.ovf' -C '/var/tmp/ova.dEFSqi'
virt-v2v: error: could not parse ovf:Name from OVF document

If reporting bugs, run virt-v2v with debugging enabled and include the
complete output:

  virt-v2v -v -x [...]
[root@kvm-ldn-01 tmp]

I can attach the XML ovf file that is is inside the ovf archive if that is
a help.

BTW: is there a way of specifying the extraction directory? My first
attempt filled up /var/tmp until I found another host
that luckily had a big enough partition.
