i am getting error "unsuported hardware family 'vmx-17'" , obviously this because I am using esx 6.7u3, any easy way to resolve (besides upgrade esx)?
thx

You would probably have to build a new ovftemplate with a lower VM hardware version (in sperf/ovftemplates).
Here is what it says:
<System>
<vssd:ElementName>Virtual Hardware Family</vssd:ElementName>
<vssd:InstanceID>0</vssd:InstanceID>
<vssd:VirtualSystemIdentifier>sperfVMv2</vssd:VirtualSystemIdentifier>
<vssd:VirtualSystemType>vmx-17</vssd:VirtualSystemType>
</System>

I don't *think* you could just edit the "vmx-17" to a lower number, but maybe. Most likely the whole thing would need to be rebuilt.
