Failed to deploy ovf package: Operation Timed Out

Summary:
I’ve found this can occur when you attempt to deploy to vmfs w/ formatted blocks not equal to 1MB.  This only applies to vmfs 3.33 and earlier.  vmfs 5 or vSphere 5 formatted datastores should not see this issue as they are all formatted in 1MB block sizes.
Workaround:
Deploy OVF to a 1MB block sized datastore.
Side Note:
I’m wondering if deployment fails because the vmdk’s were originally created on 1MB datastore’s?
