CSR1000V in vSphere 6.5 update 1

When generating CSR1000V on vSphere 6.5, you have errors as shown below.

VALUE_ILLEGAL: Value “VMXNET3 virtio” of ResourceSubType element not found in [E1000, VmxNet2, VmxNet3].

We can quickly resolve this issue by using tar to extract the ova into separate files and then edit the ovf to change “VMXNET3 virtio” to “VMXNET3”.

tar xzf csr1000v-universalk9.16.03.05.ova
vim csr1000v-universalk9.16.03.05.ovf
%s/ virtio//

run shasum on the new ovf file and replace the value in the mf file.

Should be able to deploy it now without issue by selecting each of the files (other than original ova file) during the OVA/OVF import wizard.
