Description Ilanit Stein 2020-11-03 10:34:42 UTC
Description of problem:
VM import from VMware to CNV wizard. VMware URL - It is not clear that only the FQDN / IP address is required. Users would usually/normally tend to enter https://<FQDN> - That will pass connection validation and vms detection, and the VM import can be triggered.
The VM import will fail, with an error message that do not reflect the problem.

v2v pod log show this error:
error 2020-10-20 10:42:36,452 - root - ERROR - virt-v2v error: could not parse '-ic vpx://administrator%40vsphere.local@https://rhev-node-05.rdu2.scalelab.redhat.com/Datacenter/host/Cluster/f02-h26-000-r620.rdu2.scalelab.redhat.com?no_verify=1'.  
Original error message was: parse_uri: unable to parse URI

Comment 1 Yaacov Zamir 2020-11-04 13:21:37 UTC
Note: we have a (?) help icon to open a info box that explain it, but users may miss it, in the libvirt import we have more bold hint about the url structure, we may do something similar.

Comment 4 Ilanit Stein 2020-12-27 11:56:27 UTC
Verified on 4.7.0-fc.0
When entering VMware URL that starts with https://, this error message apear: 
"Hostname must not contain https prefix".
In addition the "Check & save" button is grayed out.
