Using a domain login with VMware ovfTool

In order to use a domain user with ovfTool you need to provide the domain like:

DOMAIN\harry  

However if you do this with "\" you will find that the tool will incorrectly regard your domain as the hostname to upload to. In order to get round this you need to replace this backslash with "%5c". I.E.

DOMAIN%5charry
