I'm newbie with ESXI.
I bought one HP Proliant Microserver GEN8 and installed EXSI 6.5 and tried to install XPENOLOGY in it. Everything went well, but after that installation (that meanwhile i deleted) i had a problem with creation of new VMs.
Each time i try to create a new ovf VM it gives me the error "Failed to deploy VM: postNFCData failed: IO error". Please look at the PrtScr below.
Meanwhile, after reading a lot of forum posts i upgraded the web host gui to version 17 to see if it was the problem... but kept the same.
Can anybody give me some clues for what could be the problem?
Thank you in advance,
Have you tried the ovftool command ?
Also try with firefox and check if that works.
Thanks for your quick response.
I was trying the ovftool (still reading to understand how it works... if you could help !).
Allready working Firefox (first i thought it was a browser problem).
Here is the article with sample commands, I've not personally tried on ESXi 6.x
Tried ovftool and it seems to be working...
It gave me 2 warnings:
But when i went to ESXI web host gui the Vm was there!
Is there any way to solve the host gui problem? (to avoid using ovftool, despite it's advantages).
It says IO error, looks like network related. Please try from different machines and check it works out else you may contact vmware support to check the logs if the issue persists.
I got burned by this as well after upgrading to ESXi 6.7 and the latest ESXUI from the fling page.
Dies at 99% suggesting some sort of finalizing work is going bad, rather than a direct network cause. Network related logs both on the host, the switch, and the SAN don't show abnormalities. This occurs on Chrome 67 and Firefox 60. Not seeing anything in other ESXi logs to suggest what's wrong.
This is with an OVF I have imported through ESXUI successfully under ESXi 6.5 so I am reasonably sure the OVF isn't bad.
Some sort of IO timeout error from a smaller timeout value somewhere perhaps?
