Version 2

    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.
      <DiskSection> </DiskSection>

    Note: Size format is in MB.
    • Save and close the file.
    • Deploy the OVF again.
