Resolve Failed to Deploy OVA / OVF Issue (PostNFCdata Failed)

During the deployment of OVA or OVF appliance I have faced an issue which is:

Failed to deploy VM: postNFCData failed: Capacity of an uploaded disk is larger than requested

Also; the upload process has failed with the listed issue:

This issue occurs when an incorrect ovf capacity size is specified in the OVF file that is being deployed.

To resolve this issue, I have increased the disk size in the OVF file to match the actual size of the vmdk in the OVF, to increase disk size in OVF file follow listed steps

  • Navigate to the location of the OVF file, also if you have OVA file just unzip OVA file and start to edit the OVF file after that.
  • Open the OVF file using the text editor, and locate these tags to check the OVF disk actual size.
    <DiskSection> </DiskSection>

After correction ovf capacity

Note: Size format is in MB.
  • Save and close the file.
  • Deploy the OVF again.

hi,

I have exactly same problem mentioned below.

How you calculate 1700. I have 42 and 30 values.

This based on the disk file size as I mentioned, first you have to check disk file then changed to bytes unit and open the configuration file of OVA/OVF and updated as calculated.

That size is not mandatory for all cases, no its a specific case-by-case.
