With the recent version vCenter 7.0.0b there seems still being an issue when having HTTP / HTTPS proxy configured and trying to import an OVA / OVF.
This is the error message you will see most likely:
Failed to deploy OVF package. ThrowableProxy.cause A general system error occurred: Transfer failed: Server not trusted: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target, note that HTTP/s proxy is configured for the transfer.
A quick workaround is to disable Proxy via VAMI and only enable it when you need id to download updates via Lifecycle Manager or for vCenter updates.
Most of the time is because NO_PROXY is not set properly
NO_PROXY="localhost, 127.0.0.1, .*.vmware.com, 192.168.1.0/24"
Update, there is a KB out at VMware that you need to specify NO_PROXY according to your environment to get this working again.
Thank you! My goggling about this eventually led to this post and this is exactly what I am facing too.
Glad i was able to help!
Thanks a lot.
Thank you! This resolved my issue too.
Any update from the VMware case?
Sadly it was closed by: "You are not using a supported proxy setup" as i use a proxy that is not pingable and thus have to configure it via /etc/sysconfig/proxy
There is this KB out, and it´s all about setting the NO_PROXY right.
