Ran into a bit of snag while trying to import an OVF a phone vendor gave me into my VMWare host. I kept getting the following error- The ovf package is signed with an invalid certificate.

After performing some research on the VMWare forums I found the following tool- code.vmware.com/tool/ovf/4.1.0

After downloading it and installing the software I executed the following command.

C:\\Program Files\\VMware\\VMware OVF Tool>ovftool --acceptAllEulas <SOURCE\_OVA.OVA>  <DESTINATION\_OVF.OVF>

After that I was able import the OVF.
