I did some research, found out this comments:
Redirecting STDOUT with that option appears to be new with Ruby 2.0.

So I changed code:
vi ./opt/rh/cfme-gemset/gems/rbvmomi-1.8.2/lib/rbvmomi/vim/OvfManager.rb
        #system("#{downloadCmd} | #{uploadCmd}", STDOUT => "/dev/null")
        system("#{downloadCmd} | #{uploadCmd}")

I looked at what the gem is trying to do.
It uses a system command with the STDOUT option set to /dev/null

I created a simple Automate Method and ran it thru Simulation

# This fails
system('curl -L', STDOUT => "/dev/null")

# This works
# system('curl -L')

Trying to investigate if the Automate method closing or redirecting the STDOUT is causing this issue.

Can you please find out on which version they need the fix on.
Is it for 5.7?
