Im starting my migration from a esxi server to proxmox


root@upperdecks:/impulse1/import# cat /usr/local/bin/
# $1 = name of machine
cd /impulse1/import
rm -r -f $1
mkdir $1
ovftool vi://root@$1 .

It seems to have issues if my source vm name is and works fine for source name of dns
It seems to try to trim when the output files are created, looked like .lo was removed on some files and not others, and when I import it got confused.

Anyone seen this? Would quoting help, my vm's all have domain names because I have different domains for different test environments.
