Unable to deploy OVF/OVA Template - vCenter 6.5d (Build 5318154)

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone is aware of a solution to the following issue I am having in my lab; when attempting to deploy an OVA in vCenter Web Client 6.50 Build 5318154 (vSphere 6.5d) I am getting the following:

This version of vCenter Server does not support Deploy OVF Templates using this version of vSphere Web Client. To deploy OVF Template, login with version 6.5.0.0 of vSphere Web Client

My environment:

  • vCSA Version 6.5.0.5500 Build 5318154 (vCenter Web Client 6.50 Build 5318154 and vCenter Server at the same build level)
  • vSphere 6.5 Build 5310538

This was built as a greenfield vSphere 6.5 lab so I don't believe that the issue described in https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=21480...​ is at play (an inconsistency in the SSO token signer certificate for environments upgraded from 5.1 or earlier.). Have a workaround just looking to see if anyone has experienced this or had any guidance from support before I go down this route.

Cheers,

Adrian

I've had a similar issue with 6.5d. As a workaround, you can either deploy the OVF/OVA directly to the host (https://<HostIPorHostName>/ui), or use the OVF Tool CLI, documented here... OVF Tool Documentation.

ex> ovftool -ds=storage1 -n=myVM C:\testVM.ovf vi://user1:passwd@12.34.56.789/?ip=12.98.76.54

I hope this helps... though VMware really does need to fix this issue ASAP, especially with everything moving towards virtual appliances.

Hi Zuuted,

Thanks I did end up deploying using the host and this was successful. Lots of posts regarding this issue so hopefully they will resolve soon.

Looks like there is a fix now with KB2151085. It worked for me after upgrading to VCSA 6.5 Update 1
