I have vmware vsphere web client 6.5 with a host 6.5. I am not able to upload files to the datastore. I used different browser and not getting anywhere.. Greatly appropriate any help as I am new to Vmware.
Can't upload ISO image to datastore (vmware)
I hope all is well. Let me see what I can do for you. The most common cause of this problem is just what the error explanation tries to explain, but it can be confusing, and if you are a new user, as you are, a little frustrating too.
The main issue is often that in previous versions of vSphere, it was enough to trust the vCenter Server certificate from your browser and then the vSphere Web Client would be fully functional. In vSphere 6.5, if the self-signed certificate of the vCenter Server is not located in the “Trusted Root Certificate Authorities” of the Certificate Store, then the vSphere Web Client will not be trusted to share files with vCenter Server. As a result, no file upload capability !!
Check out this blog post on what to do, step by step to solve the issue.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and / or if you need additional help on getting this sorted.
Good luck !!
