Importing XenServer DDK 6.1 from XenCenter fails

Importing XenServer DDK 6.1 to XenServer 6.0.2 from XenCenter got stuck with message ‘Preparing to import vm’.

The workaround is to extract the DDK iso file to a NFS ISO storage. Attach that storage to your XenServer host and then import the file from there on the CLI:

xe vm-import filename=/var/run/sr-mount/a653a34e-ec0f-5134-906c-9077cafb8c9d/XS61DDK/ddk/ova.xml
