I'm facing a really weird and odd issue trying to deploy an OVA/OVF template via vcenter interface (HTML5). Each time I try to perform this there is an error
"Failed to deploy OVF package. ThrowableProxy.cause A general system error occurred: Transfer failed: The OVF descriptor is not available."
And there are some more weird things:
1. The issue appears only if I login to my VCenter using its FQDN, it's being deployed well using its IP address
2. If I try to deploy this template directly to the ESXi host it's working well despite of if I connect via FQDN or IP
The ESXi version is 6.7.0, 14320388, the VCenter version is 220.127.116.11000. I have all the root CA certificates imported to a local trusted root on my PC - doesn't help. And of course it is a workaround to be logged on by IP and deploy these images but I'd like to find a final solution
Thank you for the response! Not sure if it is a DNS issue if only you do mean VC should be able to resolve its own name (or name of a subordinate ESXi host) via DNS. In this case I'd need to point them both on the DNS server handling the zone they belong to.
