We have VMware 6.7 and unable to upload the iso image to a datastore via Vcenter UI. We can only do it via ESXi host.
Is it the only way to do ? or Is there any fixes to upload via vcenter UI?

What cert error do you get ?

This is the message
"The operation failed for an undetermined reason. Typically this problem occurs due to certificates that the browser does not trust. If you are using self-signed or custom certificates, open the URL below in a new browser tab and accept the certificate, then retry the operation"


If this does not resolve the problem, other possible solutions are shown in this KB article: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2147256
I know the PC trust the Vcenter.

What is the issuer of the ESXi hosts? is it Self signed or CA signed which you have for ESXi ?

If self signed, have the VMCA certificate publish on your local machine.. Login to VCSA webclient using FQDN as well

Thank you for your help. It is related to browser settings. I am able to upload using IE !!.
FYI: I tried both FQDN and hostname and did not work either.
