ESXI 6.5 Install Error: postnfcdata failed: Capacity of uploaded disk is larger than requested


#1

Tried to install a F5 VE on ESXi 6.5 U1 but it failed because of the error in the topic. Searched around and tried a bunch of things. In the end updating the UI is what solved the issue.

Also found another solution from a japanese technician which I did not try:
