Transfer failed: IO error during transfer of 'null': Read timed out.

I'm getting this error when trying to install the vSphere Data Protection 6.1.3 OVA file into my fresh 6.5 environment.

I saw a post on Reddit that this is an actual bug, and vmware is working on it. ?? Is that true?

Has anybody else gotten this error and fixed it?

I'd hate to have to go back to 6.0. 😞

Hey guys.

Just ran into the same issue. The resolution for me was as follows:

1. Check DNS, make sure the fully qualified domain name of the vcenter server is resolvable for the workstation you are deploying from

2. Make sure the https certs are loaded in the windows trust store. You can get the CA from the root page of the vcenter server

3. make sure you are using the fully qualified domain name to access the page.

I was using IP, maybe you are too? Smiley Wink

This fixed the problem for me.

DNS was good but I hadn't loaded the certs on the workstation I was running the client from. Once I did that it was able to deploy.
