A client can optionally specify a datastore location in the resource map to override the default datastore passed into CreateImportSpec field. This enables importing to different compute resources that do not have shared datastores.
to a ResourcePool

The parent resource pool to use for the entity. This must specify a resource pool that is not part of the vApp. If this is specified, a linked child (as opposed to a direct child) is created for the vApp.

An optional resource configuration for the created entity. If not specified, the resource configuration given in the OVF descriptor is used.

Identifies a source VirtualSystem or VirtualSystemCollection in an OVF descriptor. The source cannot be the root VirtualSystem or VirtualSystemCollection of the OVF. This is a path created by concatenating the OVF ids for each entity, e.g., "vm1", "WebTier/vm2", etc.
