RESOLVE FAILED TO DEPLOY OVA / OVF ISSUE (POSTNFCDATA FAILED)
During the deployment of OVA or OVF appliance I have faced an issue which is:
Failed to deploy VM: postNFCData failed: Capacity of an uploaded disk is larger than requested
Also; the upload process has failed with the listed issue:
This issue occurs when an incorrect ovf capacity size is specified in the OVF file that is being deployed.
To resolve this issue, I have increased the disk size in the OVF file to match the actual size of the vmdk in the OVF, to increase disk size in OVF file follow listed steps.
- Navigate to the location of the OVF file, also if you have OVA file just unzip OVA file and start to edit the OVF file after that.
- Open the OVF file using the text editor, and locate these tags to check the OVF disk actual size.

Note: Size format is in MB.
- Save and close the file.
