Meyos,
Can I just check you have the correct syntax here - you need to redirect the output from the mapdump command so you should have:
ovmapdump -v > ovmapdump.out

The ">" is the redirection operator.

    You must use the mapdump for it work properly. Take a
    look at your output from ovmapdump and make sure it is
    readable.
