This VMware Community article has a couple suggestions on what the cause could be -> NFS permissions, etc.

Thank you. I already googled it and it is not in NFS.  I'm running  4.1.0 and  running of local SCSI disk.  Do you need any other info?

Can you share the process you're going through to create the VM? And, is your storage also have ESXi installed on it, or is it separated on different local storage? When you create the VM, how large is the virtual disk size you're giving the VM?
