OVF file erroring out

I am running into an issue with creating an OVF template on Vsphere 6.5. When I try to export the file it times out. I upgraded Vsphere from 6.0 to 6.5 yesterday because it complained it needs to be upgraded to 6.5 Webclient . So both Vsphere and Web Client where upgraded to 6.5. Today i tried to create the OVF file and it just times out. No error messages. Any ideas what I would be doing wrong??

It's broke in 6.5! e.g. a bug in Web Client

It has been reported that OVF Export on 6.5 is broken.

Are you using VMware vSphere  6.5, vCenter Server 6.5 or ESXi 6.5 ?

Yes, I believe all affected. You have made sure the VM is Powered OFF.

If you are trying to backup, you could always use VMware Converter.
