I confronted a wierd downside when making an attempt to copy (add) any file (ISO, vmdk, OVA/OVF, and many others.) to the VMFS Datastore in VMware vSphere (6.7). When I click on on the “Upload Files” button in vSphere Client interface, the error “The operation failed” seems.
To get an in depth details about the error, click on Details.
There is the next message within the error window:
Typically this downside happens due to certificates that the browser doesn’t belief. If you’re utilizing self-signed or customized certificates, open the URL under in a brand new browser tab and settle for the certificates, then retry the operation.

To add a vCenter certificates to the listing of trusted certificates, go to vSphere begin web page and click on “Download trusted root CA certificates” within the backside proper nook.
In Downloads go to the ..certswin folder (there are separate folders for Windows, Linux and Mac certificates). Double-click the *.crt file and click on the Install Certificate button.
Use the Certificate Import Wizard to place your vCenter certificates to the trusted root certificates retailer in your laptop (Local Machine -> Trusted Root Certification Authorities).
Open vCenter internet interface and guarantee that the untrusted certificates warning doesn’t seem. Now you may add recordsdata to your VMFS datastore.
safety.enterprise_roots.enabled = True(in any other case you will note an error “”).
FireFox, not like different browsers (Chrome, Opera, IE) by default makes use of its personal trusted certificates listing.
