unable to deploy workstation ovf and vmdk to vsphere?

hi guys,

i'm facing a problem that when i upload the vmdk and ovf from my workstation VM

to vcenter to create the VM,

the process sometimes stuck at selecting compute resource...

and sometimes it failed at deploying, showing the message:

The "Deploy OVF template" operation failed for the entity with the following error message.

unable to access file ds:///vmfs/volumes/54052b51-66650d6b/MYVMNAME

my workstation is the latest, and the vsphere is 6.5

is the problem caused by the conversion between  workstation and vcenter?

any reply is much appreciated!

The error could be due to the mismatch between tables in the vCenter Server database. Please see KB Virtual machines names appear as ds:///vmfs/volumes/datastore/vm_name (2146168) | VMware KB  for more information.
